The Flow Chemistry platform supports a wide range of chemical syntheses employing heat, photochemistry, electrochemistry, or supported catalysis through interchangeable reactors, enabling four independently controlled reaction conditions simultaneously. One flow chemistry reactor is able to automatically run hundreds of experiments, unattended and with minimal set-up time. The BioPACIFIC platform extends this capability using a compatible in-line mid-infrared FlowIR system. The combination enables the direct tracking of key reactive species, leading to a deeper understanding of mechanism pathways and real-time process optimization.
