Abstract

Alkyl nitrites are important building blocks for the chemicaland pharmaceutical industries. In this article, we reporta case study for the continuous-flow production of alkylnitrites, originally designed by BIOS Chemicals. Theintrinsic advantages of a Corning® Advanced-Flow™reactor system, including high versatility, high mixing, andheat-exchange efficiency under corrosive conditions,allowed the development of an economically viable anduser-friendly process in a short period of time, leading toa throughput of 10t/year of processed material with highpurity (93-98 percent).
