Challenges of Continuous Flow Chemistry

During the recent online seminar – Application of the ReactIR Flow Cell to Continous Processing Technology, Professor Steven Ley discussed the challenges of continuous flow chemistry.  According to Professor Ley, one of the main challenges of continuous flow chemistry is real-time inline reaction monitoring for gaining additional control over reactions, especially when dealing with multistep synthesis sequences.
