Continuous Flow Chemistry in Medicinal Chemistry

This chapter is intended to give the reader an introduction and insight into the principles of continuous flow chemistry, from the underlying concepts and potential benefits of performing chemical synthesis in this manner to some guidelines and advice on how to get started on running their own flow chemistry. Some basic fundamental flow dynamic theory is introduced along the way. Examples of successful applications from the chemical literature are included to highlight key beneficial areas, together with a look at wider aspects of integrating flow chemistry with other complementary technologies and consideration of what future developments might bring.
