Flow Chemistry

In flow chemistry, a chemical reaction is run in a continuously flowing stream rather than in batch production. In other words, pumps move fluid into a tube, and where tubes join one another, the fluids contact one another. If these fluids are reactive, a reaction takes place. Flow chemistry is a well-established technique for use at a large scale when manufacturing large quantities of a given material. However, the term has only been coined recently for its application on a laboratory scale. Often, microreactors are used.

Famous quotes containing the words chemistry and/or flow:

    The chemistry of dissatisfaction is as the chemistry of some marvelously potent tar. In it are the building stones of explosives, stimulants, poisons, opiates, perfumes and stenches.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    Our sense of these things changes and they change,
    Not as in metaphor, but in our sense
    Of them. So sense exceeds all metaphor.
    It exceeds the heavy changes of the light.
    It is like a flow of meanings with no speech
    And of as many meanings as of men.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
