Around 2000 we extended our research activities from immobilized reagents to synthesis with microstructured flow reactors. We combined flow chemistry with other enabling technologies for organic synthesis. Suitable reactor design paves the way for high temperature / high pressure flow chemistry. In order to facilitate acccelerate flow synthesis we lately focussed on a new enabling technology of heating, namely inductive heating. (Review Chem.Lett., 2012)
