Organic Microchemical Performance of Solvent Resistant Polycarbosilane Based Microreactor
Abstract:We report the successful fabrication of preceramic polymer allylhydridopolycarbosilane (AHPCS) derived microchannels with excellent organic solvent resistance and optical transparency via economic imprinting process, followed by UV and post thermal curing process at 160 °C for 3 h. The microchemical performance of the fabricated microreactors was evaluated by choosing two model micro chemical reactions under organic solvent conditions; syntheses of 2-aminothiazole in DMF and dimethylpyrazole in THF, and compared with glass-based microreactor having identical dimensions and batch system with analogy. It is clear that AHPCS derived microreactor showed excellent solvent resistance and chemical stability compare with glass derived microreactor made by high cost of photolithography and thermal bonding process. The novel preceramic polymer derived microreactors showed reliable mechanical and chemical stability and conversion yields compare with that of glass derived microreactors, which is very promising for developing an integrated microfluidics by adopting available microstructuring techniques of the polymers.
