Flow Chemistry Unit
The Flow Chemistry Unit includes a pilot plant and laboratory equipment for carrying out flow chemistry reactions aimed at the development and industrial scale-up of fine chemistry processes. It carries out research and technology transfer activities for companies in the pharmaceutical and fine chemistry sectors. It has a team of professors and researchers with solid experience in the industrial environment.
Application of new manufacturing technologies in fine chemistry, transforming and optimising batch or discontinuous production systems into continuous production systems with more efficient, stable, safer, faster and cleaner reactions.
- Two Syrris modular reactors: one for laboratory scale and one for process scale-up (kilolab). They operate from microlitre/minute to half a litre/minute. Reaction monitoring and control is performed by process analysis techniques (PAT).
- Fine chemical reaction calorimeter for processes operating with a reaction volume between 1 and 2L, at temperatures between -20°C and 200°C, and pressure between 1 and 60 bar.
