Integrated plug flow synthesis and crystallisation of pyrazinamide
We report the integration of flow chemistry with plug flow crystallisation. Catalytic flow hydration of pyrazinecarbonitrile to pyrazinamide was performed in a packed bed column of MnO2. The effluent of this flow reactor was directly linked to a tri-segmented tubular crystalliser (KRAIC), providing a seamless transition from flow synthesis to crystallisation, with control over solid form and particle characteristics.
