The fReactor Classic and fReactor Maxi are ideally suited to flow-photochemistry and the fReactor Photo Flow module has been designed to bring this functionality to the platform.
The Photo-flow modules are an easy-to-use, powerful light source designed to integrate seamlessly with the fReactor platform. Each universal module sits directly on the fReactor (either Classic or the Maxi), and internal lensing ensure that the maximum power is delivered from the single wavelength LED to the reaction mixture. The excellent stirring within the fReactor means that the photo-active zone near the window is constantly replenished with reactants giving fast reactions. This stirring means the full range of multi-phasic reactions can be carried out allowing novel reaction schemes to be established. Of course, single phase flows are easily accommodated as well. The modules have a light-tight fit onto the fReactors and switch off when removed from the reactor, minimizing risk of exposure to the powerful light source.
