Description:

Continuous flow processes play a significant role in the process intensification of organic transformations, as is evident from the multitude of flow reactors that have been developed for various specific needs. These flow processes are deemed more sustainable due to the advantages associated with their use which include improved safety, enhanced efficiency, increased atom-economy and conversion, and ease of handling. The use of an immobilized catalyst further enhances the sustainability of organic transformations performed in flow reactors, which is exemplified in this review article with the application of immobilized ruthenium catalysts in continuous flow organic transformations during the last decade.

Purpose/Objective:

Demonstrates the impact of merging Green Chemistry principles with those of Green Engineering to increased the sustainability of chemical reactions. Provides the benefits gained when using supported catalysts in a continous flow environment.
