Engineering Aspects of Flow Chemistry

Flow chemistry has an interesting paradox, chemistry comes first and then it flows. So, every synthesis that is conventionally tried in a batch protocol and which is eventually transformed into a flow synthesis approach actually needs much greater involvement and understanding of engineering inputs that actually make one realize the desired performance under high expectations. Flow Chemistry is combination of several chemical and engineering field with mutual benefit. However, the activities in the disciplines itself do not know very much from neighboring fields. Those necessary tiny bridges have to be much larger to cross to the other discipline.
