Application Note: FlowCAT – A Versatile Continuous Flow Reactor System Focusing on Reactions Under Elevated Pressure and/or Involving Heterogeneous Catalysis
23 November 2012

The FlowCAT is a small scale high pressure flow reactor unit ideally suited to heterogeneous catalysis under pressure, but is able to handle all-liquid chemistries even down to atmospheric pressure. In this application note the use of the FLowCAT from HEL Ltd is demonstrated with numerous reactions. The FlowCAT is extremely simple to use and opens up the possibility of doing pressure reactions, including hydrogenations, in normal laboratories by chemists who are not specialists in pressure equipment.
