Enhancing chemical synthesis using catalytic reactions under continuous flow conditions

posted on 24.02.2017, 00:17 by Asadi, Mousa
Many advantages have been demonstrated for continuous flow chemistry in comparison with batch chemistry; such as easy automation, high level of reproducibility, improved safety, and process reliability. Indeed, with continuous flow processes constant reaction parameters such as temperature, time, amount of reagents, catalyst, solvents, efficient mixing etc. can easily be assured. The research detailed in this PhD thesis takes advantages of flow chemistry applying it to the Fukuyama reduction, oxazolidine nitroxyl radical oxidations, photoredox catalysis, and biodiesel production.
