Micro reactors, flow reactors and continuous flow synthesis
Dr Charlotte Wiles is the Chief Technology Officer at Chemtrix BV, and has been actively researching within the area of micro reaction technology for 10 years, starting with a PhD entitled Micro reactors in organic chemistry, which she obtained from The University of Hull in 2003. In the past decade, she has authored many scientific papers and review articles, recently co-authoring a book on the subject of micro reaction technology in organic synthesis. More recently, she has tailored her experience to the development and evaluation of commercially available continuous flow reactors, systems and peripheral equipment.

3. Meso and flow reactors
4. Flow processing in production
This review article explains the advantages of micro reactors and flow reactors as tools for conducting organic synthesis and describes how the technology may be used in research and development as well as production. A selection of examples is taken from the literature to illustrate how micro reactors enables chemists to perform their reactions more efficiently than when using batch processes.

The Journal of Chemical Research is a monthly journal which has a broad international authorship and publishes research papers and reviews in all branches of experimental chemistry.
Established in 1977 as a joint venture by the British, French and German chemical societies it maintains the high standards set by the founding societies. Each paper is independently peer reviewed and only carefully evaluated contributions are accepted.
Recent papers have described new synthetic methods, new heterocyclic compounds, new natural products, and the inorganic chemistry of metal complexes.
