We frequently get questions from our clients if particular chemistry is amenable to flow. It’s important to understand that while flow chemistry has many advantages, it is not a universal solution to all of our problems. Not every chemistry is easily transferable to flow, and there are certain processes that are ‘low hanging fruits’ and should be the first choice for starting into flow chemistry.
A simple guide published by Phutschack et al in his paper ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Flow Chemistry’ is a good reference to decide on when to go with the flow!
We, at Amar, help our clients identify these opportunities and provide turnkey continuous flow platforms for flow chemistry process development and commercialization.
