Kinlen and Zweig developed a flow reactor based on a tubular polymerization chamber.
The problem, Cadien notes, is that deposition occurs within a flow reactor characterized by an A-B cycle, the first step being millisecond-scale pulses of precursor and the second a reactant pulse of oxygen (for growing oxides).
In an article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences titled "Solar photothermochemical alkane reverse combustion," the researchers demonstrate that the one-step conversion of carbon dioxide and water into liquid hydrocarbons and oxygen can be achieved in a photothermochemical flow reactor operating at 180 to 200 C and pressures up to 6 atmospheres.
The hydrolysis process takes place in a flow reactor with a stirrer ensuring the state variable independence on the position in the reactor.
Plug Flow Reactor (PFR) model is chosen for reactor design to carry out the POM reaction.
When calculating the heat transfer it is important to take into account the occurrence of chemical reactions in the flow of the fuel gas suspension, and the variability of the flow properties, including the other distinguishing features of thermo-destructive transformations of the original fuel in the flow reactor.
Sigma-Aldrich Corporation's SAFC custom manufacturing services business unit, has installed a new commercial-scale continuous flow reactor at its Sheboygan, WI facility capable of producing up to 150 kg of product per day.
It uses specialized continuous flow reactor systems in place of large batch systems.
This approach is also faster - many companies still use "batch mode" synthesis to produce CIGS nanoparticles, a process that can ultimately take up to a full day, compared to about half an hour with a continuous flow reactor.
Uniqsis has developed a portfolio of modular flow systems, based around its Binary Pump Module (BPM) and FlowSyn flow reactor technology, to provide users with greater flexibility and broader synthesis capabilities.
At low residence times the reactor is more a plug flow reactor which gives rise to longer polymer chains.
