An innovative sequential flow platform for automated multi-step chemical processes

Development of an automated platform for the synthesis, extraction, and purification of chemical compounds using optimal synthetic routes. This work bridges the gap between how chemists and chemical engineers foresee continuous synthesis platforms. Proof of concept is demonstrated with the separation of amine/alkene mixtures with similar yields to what has been obtained in batch experiments.

Zaiput’s SEP-10 takes a central space in the paper, by allowing continuous phase separation in a minimal footprint.
