Impact of continuous flow methods on green chemistry

A new book chapter written by a team of chemists from iPRD has been published in “Green and sustainable medicinal chemistry: methods, tools and strategies for the 21st century pharmaceutical industry” by the RSC. The chapter written by John Blacker, Jess Breen, Richard Bourne and Chris Hone is entitled “The growing impact of continuous flow methods on the twelve principles of green chemistry” and discusses less wasteful strategies for synthesising chemical products using flow chemistry strategies. It explores atom economy, avoiding and minimising solvent use, degradation of products at the end of their function so they do not persist in the environment, robust catalyst systems and more.
