Five different model reactions (photodecarboxylation, inter- and intramolecular
[2+2] cycloadditions, TiO2 photocatalytic reduction and type II photooxygenation) were
investigated in the advanced Vapourtec UV-150 photo reactor with their conversion and
throughput potentials reported. Compared to known batch reactions in laboratory reactors,
significantly higher calculated productivities were achieved despite a rather small 10 mL
reactor coil. The device enables rapid, convenient, reliable and reproducible flow photochemistry
studies across the entire wavelengths spectrum and on flexible scales.
Keywords: Photochemistry, flow chemistry, capillary reactor, photodecarboxylation, photocycloaddition, TiO2 photocatalysis, photooxygenation.
