Flow Reactor Chemical Synthesis Facility

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    The ANU houses leading Australian researchers in organic, organometallic, biological and materials chemistry and boasts a student/research staff cohort of well over a hundred. The flow chemistry facility described herein will greatly expand upon the traditional scale batch synthesis operations that are currently in use by these individuals while minimising environmental impact. The advantages of this facility are manifold and include both significantly enhanced capabilities (broader experimental/chemical space) and considerably improved safety and efficiency (no unstable intermediate accumulation, greater selectivity, cleaner products, reduced solvent requirements). No flow chemistry equipment and instrumentation currently exists at ANU.
