Research Summary:

Biotechnology, fine chemical, energy, and pharmaceutical related industries are turning to microchemical systems for advantages such as high speed of research, safety of operation, and waste reduction. There is special interest in use of microsystems for continuous-flow synthesis that has applications in pharmaceuticals and specialty chemicals. Organic multistep syntheses carried out in microsystems can radically increase the speed of chemistry research and thus impact drug discovery and catalyst screening.  What is more, chemical engineering principles can be applied to develop novel design concepts for these complex, continuous syntheses.
