    The nitrosation of several alkanes using tert-butyl nitrite has been performed in flow showing a remarkable reduction in the reaction time compared with batch processing. Due to the necessity for large excesses of the alkane component a continuous recycling process was devised for the preparation of larger quantities of material.
