Catalysts can be divided into two main types - heterogeneous and homogeneous. In a heterogeneous reaction, the catalyst is in a different phase from the reactants. This facilitates both separation of the reaction product from the catalyst and re-use of the catalyst. Moreover, intimate contact between a large excess of catalyst and a small quantity of reagent at any point in time can lead to enhanced reaction rates and higher overall efficiency.
Designed to provide highly efficient mixing, excellent control over reaction parameters and unmatched performance the FlowLab Column™ flow chemistry system offers the potential to replace conventional stirred batch reactors for continuous, heterogeneously catalysed liquid phase reactions.
Built around the same high-quality components as used in the widely acclaimed Uniqsis FlowSyn™ system, the FlowLab Column™ offer uncompromised performance at an affordable price.
At the heart of the FlowLab Column™ system is a HotCoil™ heated reactor module fitted with a HotColumn adapter...
