Microfluidic Reactors

Microfluidic reactor technology has emerged as a valuable tool for organic and inorganic synthesis, within both the industrial and research setting. Recent innovations in the fabrication methods and design of microfluidic devices, have allowed the range of their applications in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and chemical industry to expand. Microfluidic systems allow the manipulation and precision control of fluids, which holds an intrinsic advantage for chemical applications. This high level of control over the reaction using such small volumes, makes microfluidic reactors a high-yield, fast throughput and safe alternative to batch processing. Our research in this area focuses on generating microfluidic platforms that improve cost-effectiveness, ease of use and utility in non-specialised environments.
