microreactor

[¦mī·krō·rē′ak·tər]
(chemical engineering)
A microsystem for chemical and biochemical reactions, including separation, fluid handling, and unit operations of chemical engineering, as well as analytical systems. Its small reaction volumes and high heat and mass transfer rates allow for precise adjustment of process conditions, short response times, and defined residence times, resulting in greater process control and higher yields and selectivity.
