Flash Chemistry Fast Organic Synthesis in Microsystems by Jun-Ichi Yoshida

Flash Chemistry Fast Organic Synthesis in Microsystems


Flash Chemistry Fast Organic Synthesis in Microsystems by Jun-Ichi Yoshida

Have you ever wished you could speed up your organic syntheses without losing control of the reaction? Flash Chemistry is a new concept which offers an integrated scheme for fast, controlled organic synthesis. It brings together the generation of highly reactive species and their reactions in Microsystems to enable highly controlled organic syntheses on a preparative scale in timescales of a few seconds or less. Flash Chemistry: Fast Organic Synthesis in microsystems is the first book to describe this exciting new technique, with chapters covering: an introduction to flash chemistryreaction dynamics: how fast is the act of chemical transformation, what is the rate of reaction, and what determines the selectivity of a reaction?examples of why flash chemistry is needed: the rapid construction of chemical libraries, rapid synthesis of radioactive PET probes, and on-demand rapid synthesis in industrythe generation of highly reactive species through thermal, microwave, chemical, photochemical, and electrochemical activationmicrosystems: What are microsystems and how are they made? Why is size so important? What are the characteristic features of microsystems?conduction and control of extremely fast reactions using microsystemsapplications of flash chemistry in organic synthesispolymer synthesis based on flash chemistryindustrial applications of flash chemistry Flash Chemistry: Fast Organic Synthesis in Microsystems is an essential introduction to anyone working in organic synthesis, process chemistry, chemical engineering and physical organic chemistry concerned with fundamental aspects of chemical reactions an d synthesis and the production of organic compounds.


The book provides a nice, self-consistent overview of the motivation for flow chemistry, the basic principles of chemical reactions and organic synthesis, and an examination of the concepts of fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, and devices. ( JACS , August 2009) I found the book very readable and would recommend it to anyone wishing to learn about the benefits of microreactor technology... The author has structured the book well; the introductory chapters clearly establish the basic concepts of microreactor technology. ( Chemistry World , March 2009)
