Flow microreactor systems are quite effective for controlling reactions involving highly reactive reagents. Furthermore, microreactor technology is capable of performing a wide range of single and multiphase organic reactions, requiring small quantities of reagents. The sub-millimeter reaction channels allow for precise control of variables such as reagent mixing, flow rates, reaction time and heat and mass transfer. They are amenable to integrated reaction monitoring and to semipreparative scale-up and also reduce hazardous risks. In this context, many reactions in fine chemical synthesis occur under very acidic and harsh conditions. The main objective of this project is to set-up a flow chemistry platform for developing chemical synthesis including glycosylation under these conditions.
