High Pressure pumping
The Vapourtec high pressure pump module, launched in 2012, extends the range of flow chemistry considerably, allowing reaction pressures up to 200 bar.
This makes a range of chemistries possible that were not before, while retaining the ease of use and automated optimisation facilities that the Vapourtec system is known for.
As an example of the high pressure pump module capability, there are some very volatile solvents which at elevated temperatures would not remain liquefied, even at 50 bar. Dimethylamine (DMA), with a BP of 7oC requires a pressurised reactor to use it in the liquid state even at room temperature.
But with the highly capable Vapourtec high pressure module, it is possible to run a reaction involving DMA at 235oC. This application note shows how, with a system running at a pressure of 140 bar.
