Continuous flow chemistry: the laboratory of the future
Will the chemistry of the future be on robots’ hands? Our research project wants to present the laboratory of the future and how the way of synthesis of new products is changing. Through a program where students will decide on the modifications to be performed in order to improve a chemical reaction, we will introduce concepts such as reactions in continuous flow, catalysis, or automation, among others. To consolidate what they have learned, the students will test the reaction and see how the application of new technologies in the laboratory can bring many advantages, as for instance making the safest process or obtaining cleaner products by modifying the variables of the reaction of traditional processes.
In this project, we aim to promote the scientific vocation of a group of young students with special interest and talent for chemistry, as well as boosting their enthusiasm for science and research. We want to consolidate and expand the knowledge of the students in chemistry through direct contact with experimentation, as well as to introduce novel technologies and methods within the field.
