Finding work and having access to free or inexpensive resources are key imperatives for those of us in the consulting community. In this short presentation, John will provide an update to similar presentations he has given in the past. Members are encouraged to provide links to resources they have found useful so that they can be included in the update and subsequently published in the resources section on the CCN website.
Flow chemistry represents the conversion of classical batch reactions to continuous operation. These reactions exploit the large difference in surface area to volume ratio of batch vs continuous and opens up new chemical pathways for development since flow reactions can be done at higher temperatures and pressures and avoid intermediate production of hazardous substances. Continuous systems have much smaller footprints and allow for capital cost savings of 25 to 50%. This talk will provide a general introduction to flow chemistry and provide examples of new installations and approaches.
