Removing one key barrier to the industrial uptake of green chemistry and nanocatalysis in the fine and specialty
chemical industry requires to fill an ongoing “talent shortage” via expanded chemistry education. In this study we
show how the use of hybrid sol-gel catalysts to synthesize fine chemicals and active pharmaceutical ingredients in
flow chemistry reactors illustrates new ideas to reshape chemistry education based on recent research outcomes,
visualization and digital tools. Aiming to expand the knowledge base, skills and competencies that comprise the
aforementioned new professional talent in catalysis and green chemistry currently in high demand, we identify
several lessons learned from the industrial and academic utilization of these materials.
The Vapourtec R-Series is, quite simply, unrivalled for flow chemistry
- Flexible :
- Precise :
The R-Series is undoubtedly the most versatile, modular flow chemistry system available today.
The Vapourtec E-Series is the perfect introductory system for flow chemistry
- Robust :
- Easy to use :
The E-Series is a robust and affordable, entry level flow chemistry system designed for reliability and ease of use.
