An asymmetric Paternò–Büchi-type photoreaction between 2,3-dimethyl-2-butene and benzoylformic acid ester with a chiral menthyl auxiliary was studied in a continuous-flow microcapillary reactor. The fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) microcapillary reactor using normal one-layer flow mode gave oxetane products with better efficiency than the batch system. In addition, the slug flow mode in microcapillary reactor using inactive reagent, N2 gas or H2O, improved the reaction efficiency dramatically because of synergistic light dispersion, stirring and thin layer film effects. The reaction efficiencies under each condition were discussed as energy efficiencies calculated from reactors' parameters.

Metaldehyde (2,4,6,8-tetramethyl-1,3,5,7-tetraoxacyclo-octane) is a tetramer of acetaldehyde. Information about the slug-killing properties of metaldehyde was first published in 1936 [ 1 ]. It is a molluscicide

The diastereoselective [2+2] photocycloaddition of ethylene to a chiral cyclohexenone was studied in a continuous flow microcapillary reactor. In all cases examined, the microcapillary reactor gave higher conversions and selectivity than the batch system, even after shorter irradiation times. These findings were explained by the superior temperature control, favorable light penetration, and generation of a gas–liquid slug flow with improved mass transfer in the microreactor.

The infusion rate of a slug of tracer into an anchor agitated 100-liter batch mixer was characterized by a decay rate constant.
This constant was then used to define a dimensionless mixing-rate number which was related to the stirrer Reynolds number.
This correlationship allows the calculation of time or rotational speed needed to achieve any desired degree of uniformity
of the mixture.99mTc was used as radiotracer and the mixing process was followed by a scintillation Nal(Tl) counter situated on the reactor
wall near the injection point.
