Green chemistry and engineering are creating a culture change for the future direction of industry. Flow chemistry will be an essential tool to sustainable and tailored chemical-based processes. This project will design, build, test, and evaluate prototypes of flow reactors for targeted chemical processes.
Issues Involved or Addressed
Technology transfer from batch to flow; reaction and reactor design; in-flow IR analysis; in-flow UV analysis with live data information.
