Microreactor Technology (MRT) or flow chemistry is an upcoming technology in the fine-chemistry and pharmaceutical industry. The excellent mass- and heat-transfer properties of microreactors give this technology many advantages over batch-wise chemistry. Thanks to the low hold-up per microreactor this technology is inherently safe. Microreactor technology lends itself perfectly for highly exothermic or otherwise dangerous chemical reactions.
In our web store, we offer a range of polymer and glass microliter microreactors and a one milliliter scale reactor. But if you have a specific task or goal in mind, our prototyping and product development services will gladly help you develop the right microreactor.
Mixing and heating fluids in a Microreactor yields a very high degree of control on the chemical reaction. Only small quantities of fluids are necessary because of the limited space in a Microreactor. This means that heating and cooling can be done more precisely. Unwanted side reactions due to gradients in temperature or concentration almost don’t occur. This means that the reaction in a microreactor yields a purer product than batch-wise chemistry. Scaling up with microreactor technology is done by numbering up the microreactors. Thus, the continuous and consistent circumstances keep maintained. In a parallel setting production volumes can reach several tens of tons annually.
The making process of microreactors is automated, which makes your experiment with multiple chips highly reproducible.
