Mark Bernardes – UCL Chemical Engineering


In the last two decades, continuous flow synthesis has witnessed prolific growth in disciplines of chemistry, material science and biology. In order to utilize its full potential, handling solid particles in flow is considered as one of the significant barriers. The ability to handle solids involving reactions and engineering functional particles in crystallization and precipitation in a continuous flow framework offers a massive opportunity for scaled-up high throughput industrial manufacturing. Hence, flow reactors for particle technology have earned its place in chemical engineering research for reasons explained with several examples in this talk. The talk will give an overview of the development of novel methodologies on improving the feasibility of flow reactors as fouling free continuous particle handling platforms.

Presented by: Dr Sayan Pal, Postdoctoral Researcher in UCL Chemical Engineering
