It is the aim of the Noël group to understand the fundamental phenomena associated with flow chemistry. It is our firm belief that the engineering behind these phenomena can help to exploit the technology’s full potential. This includes e.g. a fundamental investigation towards the energy efficiency of photomicroreactors and an elucidation of reaction kinetics to study reaction mechanisms. Also, scaling effects are investigated which allow us to gradually scale the chemistry from a lab to a pilot scale.
