microreactor


Also found in: Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

microreactor

A device that hosts a nanoscale reaction in which reactants meet substrates in the narrowest (capillary) scale.

Pros
Increased efficiency, reaction speed and yield; safety, reliability, scalability, on-site/on-demand production, improved process control.

[UKPRwire, Thu Feb 21 2019] Fact.MR recently published an all-inclusive forecast study on the microreactor technology market to find out the prevalent opportunities over the forecast period of 2018 and 2028.
This can be achieved at smaller scales, for example, in transwell plates or microreactors. Because secreted factors are important for hMSC and beta cell cocultivation, the hydrodynamics in bioreactors, which influence the distribution of the secreted molecules, should be considered at an early stage [114].

This may be because the model was developed using microreactor data with N[H.sub.3] as the reductant, while the engine tests utilize urea as the reducing agent, which introduces some extra complications; urea decomposition kinetics, evaporation rates, flow dynamics and deposition of urea byproducts and their further reaction all add to the complexity of the system and hence some of the discrepancies observed between model predictions and measured data for the transient N[H.sub.3] slip predictions.
The catalytic experiments for [N.sub.2]O decomposition were carried out in an alumina tube (4.76 mm i.d.) microreactor. Amount of 500.0 mg sample of supported catalyst was filled into the reactor to form a catalyst bed.
