Analyze Continuous Flow Chemistry in Real-Time
FlowIR™ is a dedicated Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) instrument for real-time monitoring of continuous flow chemistry. FlowIR™ is extremely small making it possible to place anywhere within the continuous reactor setup. With no special connections required, FlowIR™ can be seamlessly integrated into all flow chemistry synthesis systems, both commercially available and home-built.
Being able to monitor continuous flow chemistry while in operation allows for the:
- Detection of dispersion and diffusion effects, making it possible to stoichiometrically add additional reagent streams, minimizing the amount of expensive materials used
- Adjustment in real time of reactant flow rates, enabling steady state conditions to be reached faster
- Rapid screening of reaction conditions, leading to faster process optimization
Use of multiple FlowIR™ instruments allows for the optimization of syntheses that involve multiple steps.
