Highlighted articles: Last flow review published by Kerry Gilmore, Peter H. Seeberger et al., and entitled The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Flow Chemistry is a required consultation for those who want to initiate in the flow chemistry world.
An easy and enjoyable reading in which the authors describe in detail the different types of reactors, multiphase systems, mixing, key parameters of this technology, common problems, etc.
Abstract: Flow chemistry involves the use of channels or tubing to carry out a reaction in a continuous stream rather than in a flask. Flow equipment provides to the chemists with an unique control over reaction parameters enhancing the reactivity, or in some cases, enabling new reactions. This relatively young technology has received a remarkable amount of attention in the past decade with many reports on what can be done in flow. Until recently, however, the question, “Should we do this in flow?” has merely been an afterthought. This review introduces readers to the basic principles and fundamentals of flow chemistry and critically discusses recent flow chemistry accounts.
