The fReactor - Maxi platform shares many of the characteristics of the fReactor - Classic but with a larger volume, yet using the same convenient base plate. It allows both single and multiphasic reactions to be carried out across a range of residence times. With a total volume of ~35ml this is well suited to evaluation of flow chemistry at a slightly larger scale. The fReactor Maxi is flexible in operation and easy-to-use.
The 5 modules, each of which form a separate reaction zone, ensure a good residence time distribution. These locate onto a metal baseplate which sits on conventional
laboratory hotplate-stirrer. With mixing in each zone, this reactor brings great flexibility in the length of residence time for both single and multiphasic reactions. Multiple ports allow telescoping of reactions, sampling or integration of sensors within the reactors. Guides for operation of the Maxi are being produced but the same operating processes generally apply to the fReactor Classic.
