Integrated Continuous Processing

Lead Research Organisation: University of Nottingham
Department Name: Sch of Chemistry

Abstract

The chemical reactions currently used in the fine chemicals and pharmaceutical industries often involve toxic reagents which can generate large amounts of waste. Photochemical and electrochemical reactions can, in principle, eliminate the need for some of these reagents and can lead to high selectivity. The use of appropriate catalysts for thermal reactions can reduce the waste further. This PhD project will exploit newly developed reactors for photochemistry, electrochemistry and catalysis to demonstrate how these techniques can be applied in practice to continuous (flow) processes. The work programme will complement the work being carried out on EPSRC Grant EP/P013341/1 "Photo-Electro: Transforming Chemical Synthesis, Discovery and Manufacture"
