Flow approaches towards sustainability

Author affiliations


Green chemistry and flow chemistry are ideal partners for accessing novel chemical spaces and define highly efficient synthetic tools. In this review article contributions have been selected according to the advantages offered in terms of features that are not immediately related to classic green metrics such as minimization of reaction time, optimization for time screening, waste minimization, safety improvement, process intensification and easy scale up, energy and cost efficiency. Such features make processes in flow highly interesting in terms of developing a green and sustainable chemistry.
