    Continuous-flow processing is proving to be an enabling technology for synthetic organic chemists. After an introduction to the advantages and disadvantages of flow processing and an overview of the equipment currently available, the use of flow chemistry in a range of avenues of organic chemistry is showcased. Attention is focused on areas such as hazardous transformations, multistep synthesis, photochemistry, electrochemistry, and organocatalysis. The scope of the chapter is also broadened to techniques used for monitoring flow processes and the incorporation of flow chemistry into the undergraduate teaching laboratory.
