Scale-Up Synthesis of Organic LEDs using Reactor-Ready Pilot

Dow Chemical were able to change a potentially dangerous situation to one with improved safety and control
Radleys Reactor-Ready Pilot at Dow Chemical

Situation

Dow previously used 10 litre and 20 litre round bottom flasks which were heavy, hot, dangerous to lift and pour. Also the surface of the flask sometimes got burnt, causing the colour to change. 

Objective

Reduce the danger associated with the existing methodology and improve the control of heating the flask contents.

Results

  1. Improved safety - no handling issues associated with product removal from hot round bottom flasks.
  2. Improved control - using a thermoregulator circulator with Reactor-Ready Pilot meant that there was better temperature control, the flask contents did not burn and the colour of the contents remained good.
  3. Safe and rapid vessel exchange possible depending on the required volume.
