Syrris has introduced an easy to use flow chemistry experimental system, the FRX. With the FRX, reactions occur under laminar flow conditions, improving reaction speed, optimisation and control.
The FRX flow chemistry systems are modular, allowing chemists to select the system that best meets individual needs and can be easily upgraded to meet changing demands.
The FRX flow chemistry experimental systems available from John Morris Scientific are small in size and fits effortlessly into the laboratory workplace.
The FRX product range includes four FRX systems, 100, 200, 300 and 400, which have a range of functionalities and offer simple manual mode operation from the instrument’s front panel.
The flow chemistry experimental systems also allow both a solid and solution phase chemistry to be performed, expanding the range of reaction types that can be carried out in flow. Furthermore, high pressure capabilities permit the super heating of solvents and further increase reaction speed.
Modularity provides flexibility and easy integration of the units for increased reaction steps or more complex set ups when required.
Both the wide flow range pump and reaction heating systems allow multiple reaction conditions to be run.
Additionally analysis can be undertaken throughout the reaction by manually diverting a small quantity of the reaction product for testing.
The FRX systems range from the basic 100, designed for initial flow chemistry work using a larger volume tube reactor and the 200, with a micro reactor and solid phase column to the more complex FRX 300 and 400 for multi step chemistry and more complex set ups.
Both the 300 and 400 incorporate an FRX liquid – liquid extraction module (FLLEX). The FLLEX facilities compound purification and separation post reaction, which once separated can be passed for collection, analysis or further reaction.
The FRX 400 also allows reaction cooling and can be used with solid supported chemistries.
