Applications of Flow Microreactors in Electrosynthetic Processes

Applications of Flow Microreactors in Electrosynthetic Processes
Yoshimasa Matsumura, Hiroyuki Tateno, Mahito Atobe
The fundamental advantages and potential benefits of flow microreactor technology include extremely large surface-to-volume ratios, precise control over temperature and residence time, extremely fast molecular diffusion, and increased safety during reactive processes. These advantages and benefits can be applied to a wide range of electrosynthetic techniques, and so the integration of flow microreactors with electrosynthesis has received significant research interest from both academia and industry. This review presents an up-to-date overview of electrosynthetic processes in continuous-flow microreactors. In addition, the advantages of continuous-flow electrochemistry are discussed, along with a thorough comparison of microreactor-based processes and conventional batch reaction systems.
