Developed by Asynt in conjunction with the University of Leeds (UK), the fReactor Photo Flow is designed to provide an easy-to-use, yet powerful platform for scientists looking to explore photochemistry in flow chemistry applications.
Photocatalysis can be a valuable synthetic tool for providing access to reaction pathways which could prove problematic or require multi-step synthetic routes using classical thermal or chemical activation methods. There have, however, been safety concerns surrounding ionising UV light and overly complex equipment in photochemistry.
Specifically designed for ease of use and high operational safety, the fReactor Photo Flow delivers consistent light flux, controlled exposure times and precise temperature control. The latest addition to the Asynt fReactor Flow Chemistry platform has been launched with two high power LED wavelengths options (450nm / Blue and 365nm / UV), to suit most photochemical activation requirements. Alternative excitation wavelength options are available upon request.
Integrating the efficiency of pipe-flow processing with the advanced mixing of five Continuous Stirred Tank Reactors (CSTR), fReactor delivers a versatile ‘plug-and-flow’ setup which is well-suited to multiphasic reactions.
Installation of each module is straight forward, clipping over the required fReactor cell. Users can use up to five Photo Flow modules to use on a fReactor base platform, powered by a single supply using an optional splitter lead.
