PRODUCING MUCH WITH LESS: SCALING-OUT APPROACHES FOR CONTINUOUS-FLOW


INTRODUCTION

How can tiny reactors, i.e. continuous-flow microreactors, make production of quantitative amounts of chemicals? It seems a contraction in terms. This issue was 20 years ago controversially discussed and controversial, at the birth of microreaction technology. Since then, it has been demonstrated that micro- and small-scale continuous-flow reactors can indeed be used for chemical production. Yet, still today it remains a myth for beginners and ... ...
