Project description

This project aims at the study of specific organic reactions which are difficult to scale up or to perform under batch conditions. A number of generic reactions will be studied in order to be able to perform these under microreactor conditions. The microreactor procedure will be studied fundamentally and will be optimised to make these reactions industrially relevant.
