The ever-increasing interest in photochemistry has inspired the development of innovative, modular flow photochemistry reactors.

Advancements in technology combined with the rediscovery of new ‘reagentless’ activation methods—such as using light in photochemistry and electrons in electrochemistry—have changed the way researchers devise synthesis routes toward novel molecules and set up their experiments. Photochemistry has gained much recognition over the past 20 years, and this growing trend has led to the development of innovative, modular flow photochemistry systems that allow users to efficiently switch between chemistries.
