Photochemical Reactor

 

a glass or quartz vessel for carrying out chemical reactions that occur under the action of artificial or natural light. Photochemical reactors are used in industrial installations for the production of a large number of substances and materials, for example, in installations for the nitrosation of cyclohexane in the production of caprolactam.
