A Guide to Flow Chemistry Equipment

Posted on: November 4, 2022

Flow chemistry swaps flasks for fluidics: replacing the tools of conventional “batch” processing with flow chemistry equipment that handles continuous streams of reactants and products. Carrying out a lab-scale synthesis continuously (or “in flow”) can offer numerous advantages. Increased availability … Continue reading
