Activities

Summary

We combine expertise in the field of (chemical) engineering and chemistry to help our customers to benefit from Flow Chemistry. Our expertise enables us to offer scalable and flexible Flow Chemistry solutions. We focus on delivering the customer higher profits by accessing new chemical possibilities, via a safe and reliable scale-up from lab to production

Profile

Flow Chemistry

Continuous Flow Chemistry enables researchers to both evaluate and produce synthetic intermediates and products that would otherwise be inaccessible using conventional batch techniques. The scale that reactions are performed on is key to harnessing the advantages of this technology which stem from the rapid mixing and efficient thermal transfer at the µm to mm scale.

Working closely together with the pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industry Chemtrix BV has developed a complete, easy to scale product portfolio for continuous processing from lab to industrial production scale. Our laboratory systems (Labtrix® and KiloFlow®) are based on glass reactors, selected due to chemical compatibility, familiarity to the synthetic chemist and optical transparency. Our system for industrial scale continuous manufacturing, Plantrix®, is based on 3M™ Silicon Carbide reactors selected for their superior chemical flexibility and high corrosion resistance.

Flow Chemistry Publications

The application of continuous flow micro reactors is based on solving problems that are currently observed in the batch technology being used for the synthesis of chemical products in the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industry. The following advantages can be expected when using a continuous flow micro reactor in place of a conventional batch reactor:

  • Safe use of more extreme reaction conditions (even for dangerous reactions);
  • Increased selectivity of reactions; a reduction in the use of raw materials and energy with reduced waste production;
  • Decrease in development time; a shorter experiment time, no need for scale-up;
  • Reduction in product lead time; combination of more synthetic steps in a single micro reactor.
