A laboratory-scale continuous flow chlorine generator for organic synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A simple continuous flow setup for the generation and use of elemental chlorine for organic synthesis has been developed. The chlorine generator is based on the reaction of HCl with NaOCl, generating NaCl and H2O as the only side products. As a proof-of-concept, the reactor has been applied for a variety of chlorinations and oxidations of organic compounds.
