Efficient kinetic experiments in continuous flow microreactors

Author affiliations

Abstract

Flow chemistry is an enabling technology that can offer an automated and robust approach for the generation of reaction kinetics data. Recent studies have taken advantage of transient flows to quickly generate concentration profiles with various online analytical tools. In this work, we demonstrate an improved method where temperature and flow are transient throughout the reaction. It was observed that only two orthogonal temperature ramp experiments under the same transient flow condition were sufficient to characterize a Paal–Knorr (one step bimolecular) reaction within our chosen reaction space. This method further shortens the time and decreases the materials needed to collect sufficient kinetic data and provides a framework with which more complex kinetic studies could be performed.
