Microstructured flow reactors increase process efficiency
Microstructured flow reactors are perfectly suited for performing photochemical syntheses. Incident light is perfectly utilized with gas and liquid streams and solid phases in microchannels or capillaries. Full irradiation of the reaction solution is combined with precise control over the irradiation time as defined by volume in the channels and capillaries and flow rate. Micro reaction technology and photochemical synthesis are most fruitful partners for the sustainable production of high value fine chemicals.
"We use light as sensitive energy source for the productive synthesis of your chemical compounds."
Concerning the light input we count on energy-efficient LED technology. The small size of the LEDs and their relatively low waste heat allow for a targeted adaption of the lighting units to any particular microreactor class. A further special advantage of these light sources is their quasi-monochromatic light emission, allowing a very selective excitation of the photochemically active material.
