A Routine Synthesis Tool
A wide range of chemical conversions have been reported in microflow electrolysis cells and all should be possible in Ammonite cells.
The circular electrodes and spiral microflow channel lead to a compact cell but with the extended length essential for a high conversion in a single pass with a relatively high flow rate of reactant solution through the cell. The design also leads to a controlled and efficient mass transport regime.
Two sizes of cell are available. The Ammonite8 Cell is well suited to initial investigations of new systems and can synthesise grams of product per hour. The larger Ammonite15 Cell is suitable for scale up of a synthesis to tens of grams of product.
