The building blocks of flow chemistry

unixis It has developed a wide range of affordable ‘modular building blocks’ to which users can simply add their own pumps to create a flow chemistry system.

Because they are compatible with a wide range of existing instrumentation, Uniqsis reactor modules significantly reduce the cost of setting up a high-performance flow chemistry system. Users can invest in only the capabilities they need now while maintaining the ability to expand their flow chemistry system in the future without duplication.

These low-cost/high-performance basic building blocks are truly a “no compromise” solution for the many benefits of flow chemistry.

The Cold Coil Flow Reactor Module II is designed to provide a flexible, entry-level solution for low-temperature flow chemistry applications. When used with an external thermostat, the Cold Coil II can maintain constant temperatures between -78°C and +150°C for long periods of time. An adapter can be mounted on the top of the unit to support Glass Static Mixer (GSM) chips.

Offering an ambient operating temperature range of up to +300°C, the HotCoil Reactor Heater provides a versatile solution for the laboratory to perform a wide range of flow chemical reactions. HotCoil can also be upgraded with a simple adapter to support the use of glass and stainless steel column reactors to improve the heterogeneous catalytic reaction. If you are looking for precise temperature control of flow chemistry reactions in GSM chips, HotChip is the ideal solution.

Uniqsis also offers a range of modules that allow users to create a high-performance photochemistry system. Borealis is a high-intensity LED module, available in a range of fixed wavelengths that converts a temperature-controlled current coil reactor module into a flow reactor for photochemical applications. PhotoSyn is a high-power LED light source for scale-up continuous flow chemistry applications. Available with a selection of different LED arrays, the unit can provide outputs of up to 700W from a dedicated programmable power supply. These products provide consistent and repeatable light penetration, controllable exposure times and precise temperature control resulting in higher yields and improved selectivity.

Other “building block” modules are available for rapid, efficient and controllable gas-liquid phase flow chemistry reactions as well as a built-in solid-state UV spectrophotometer module with a fiber-optically connected flow cell to monitor steady-state conditions and control the product batch.
