Description:

An efficiently designed continuous flow chemical process can lead to significant advantages in developing a sustainable chemical synthesis or process. These advantages are the direct result of being able to impart a higher degree of control on several key reactor and reaction parameters. Furthermore, these controls can be utilized to increasing the sustainability value of that chemical synthesis or process. This article will examine the contributions from a continuous flow reactor and the advantages, which are gained when compared to a batch reactor. Additionally, an expanded detail of these advantages will be presented and used to explain the contribution they have which can increase the sustainability of a chemical synthesis or chemical process.

Purpose/Objective:

Demonstration of the impact arising from the application of new reactor configurations and reaction strategies on the sustainability of chemical reactions and processes.
