With over a decade of working in the flow chemistry industry, Vapourtec has accumulated a wealth of experience. To enable our customers to access this, we are launching a series of videos that show a broad range of reactions being performed using our products in our own laboratory. Each video in the series aims to provide a reference of the operational procedures and system configurations that can be used to achieve efficient, reproducible and safe chemistry using our products.
Vapourtec Ion introduction audio
Vapourtec has paid particular attention in the design of the Ion electrochemical reactor to ensure that the electrodes can be quickly and easily changed. Also to ensure the design is sufficiently robust to guarantee leak-free operation after every change of electrode. This video shows how quick and easy it is to change the electrode material. With audio.

Suzuki coupling using a packed-bed catalyst
Vapourtec R-Series has been used to achieve rapid reaction times and high conversion of a Suzuki coupling, using a commercially available supported palladium catalyst. With a reaction time of just 1 min 15 seconds, it was possible to achieve yields of over 80%, at greater than 95% purity following a simple chromatographic separation.
Selective hydrogenation using a slurry of Pd/C and hydrogen gas
At Vapourtec we have made use of our patented V-3 peristaltic pumps, and new pressure regulation mode to perform a continuous flow hydrogenation with a heterogeneous catalyst pumping as a slurry.
Vapourtec Flow Chemistry Nano-particle synthesis
In this video, Ryan demonstrates the synthesis of nanoparticles of a spin-crossover coordination polymer using a procedure developed by the group of Prof. Chick Wilson at the University of Bath.
Vapourtec Nucleophilic Aromatic Substitution at High Temperature
In this video, Ryan uses the Vapourtec high temperature reactor to carry out a nucleophilic aromatic substitution.
Vapourtec Flow Chemistry Biphasic Reactions – Stevens Oxidation
In this video, Ryan performs the biphasic oxidation of an aldehyde using methanol and sodium hypochlorite in the Vapourtec reactor for rapid mixing.
Biphasic Vapourtec Static Mixing
Vapourtec’s static mixer tubular reactor for strong acid resistance and volumes up to 20ml, this is a demonstration of the reactor performance.
