Abstract:This paper describes a multichannel silicon-glass microreactor which has been utilized to investigate the kinetics of a Knoevenagel condensation reaction under different reaction conditions. The reaction is performed on the chip in four parallel channels under identical conditions but with different residence times. A special topology of the reaction coils overcomes the common problem arising from the difference in pressure drop of parallel channels having different length. The parallelization of reaction coils combined with chemical quenching at specific locations results in a considerable reduction in experimental effort and cost. The system was tested and showed good reproducibility in flow properties and reaction kinetic data generation.
