Grignard reagents are powerful tools for forming C-C bonds, but require careful handling. A collaboration between the Janssen Research Group and Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha has used a Vapourtec R-series to overcome the challenges of their formation and use. By developing a continuous flow protocol for the in-situ production of Grignard reagents in continuous flow, reagents are produced as needed and under the safety and control of the Vapourtec system.
