A Hybridised Optimisation of an Automated Photochemical Continuous Flow Reactor
Keywords:Algorithm, Automation, Continuous flow, Photochemistry, Self-optimisation
AbstractA new hybridized algorithm that combines process optimisation with response surface mapping was developed and applied in an automated continuous flow reaction. Moreover, a photochemical cascade CSTR was developed and characterised by chemical actinometry, showing photon flux density of ten times greater than previously reported in batch. The success of the algorithm was then evaluated in the aerobic oxidation of sp3 C–H bonds using benzophenone as photosensitizer in the newly developed photo reactor.
