Development of highly efficient gas/liquid photomicroreactor systems (3E007912)

The use of miniaturized reactor systems (microreactors) will be evaluated in photochemical reactions. These are not hampered by low penetration of light, due to the small channels, and can mediate good contact between gaseous and liquid products. Energy efficiency will be improved by taking advantage of recent advances in lighting technology. Energy efficient LED and laser lighting lowers energy demands.
