Thesis: Process intensification on rotating surfaces (PIRS) in controlling chemical reactivity and selectivity

Synthesis of the different organic molecules involving the use of recently developed process intensification in the Vortex fluidic device (VFD).

Why my research is important

Process Intensification (PI) is a continuous flow processing with the major improvements and advantages relative to batch processing. It has implications regarding reaction rate, conversion, selectivity, separation rate, efficiency, safety and overall process economics. This research focuses on developing more efficient and alternative synthetic protocols for targeted organic reactions.
