A selection from a series of videos on flow chemistry at Beilstein TV (from the ICIQ Institute in Catalonia, Spain).
I enjoy this type of demonstration because it provides a real look at how the process works rather than looking at diagrams of flow and reaction schemes — from an educational point of view it provides a look at how this could fit into our own research. So here we have an excellent video demonstration of an aminooxylation of an aldehyde and nitrosobenzene with a chiral catalyst bed. The demonstration includes a full process of catalyst loading, pump parameter execution and in situ-IR monitoring. Although I will be covering column beds and scavenging reagents in the future, the chiral catalyst in this example provides a good idea how chemists use in-line catalysis to their advantage. Enjoy!
