Building blocks for flow chemistry

Published: 3-Nov-2023

Uniqsis has developed an extensive range of affordable “building block” modules to which you can simply add your own pumps to create a flow chemistry system

Compatible with a wide range of existing hardware, Uniqsis reactor modules significantly lower the cost of setting up a high-performance flow chemistry system.

Beneficially, you can invest in just the capabilities you need now while preserving the ability to expand your flow chemistry system in the future with no redundancy.

Designed and supported by Uniqsis, specialists in flow chemistry, these low cost/high-performance building block modules are truly a “no compromise” solution to gaining the many benefits of flow chemistry.

The Cold Coil II Flow Reactor Module from Uniqsis is designed to provide a flexible, entry level solution for low temperature flow chemistry applications.

Used in conjunction with an external thermoregulation circulator, the Cold Coil II can maintain stable temperatures between –78 °C and +150 °C for extended periods of time. An adapter can be fitted to the module top to support glass static mixer (GSM) chips.

Offering an operating temperature range of ambient to +300 °C, the HotCoil reactor heating module provides a versatile solution for your lab to undertake a wide range of flow chemistry reactions.

The HotCoil can also be upgraded with a simple adapter to support the use of glass and stainless-steel column reactors for heterogeneous catalysis reaction optimisation. If you are looking for the precise temperature control of flow chemistry reactions in GSM chips, then the HotChip is the heater module for you. 

Uniqsis also offers a range of modules that allow you to create a high-performance flow photochemistry system.

The Borealis is a high-intensity LED lamp unit, available in a range of fixed wavelengths, that converts an existing temperature-controlled coil reactor module into a flow reactor for photochemical applications.

The PhotoSyn is a high-power LED light source for continuous flow chemistry scale-up applications. Available with a selection of different LED arrays, the unit can provide outputs of up to 700W from the dedicated programmable power supply.

These products give reproducible and consistent light penetration, controlled exposure times and precise temperature control resulting in higher yields and improved selectivity.

Other building block modules are available for fast, efficient and controllable gas-liquid phase flow chemistry reactions, as well as a solid-state inline UV spectrophotometer module with a fibre optically connected flow cell to monitor steady state conditions and control product collection.
