Microreactor technology (MRT) or flowchemistry is an upcoming technology in the fine-chemistry and the pharmaceutical industry. The excellent mass- and heat-transfer properties of microreactors give this technology many advantages over batchwise chemistry:
- higher yield and selectivity
- inherently safer processing
- straight forward scaling-up
- continuous production possible
- improved reactor control
- enables new chemistry
