The micro reaction technology has emerged over the past two decades as one of the promising synthetic tools that can create new horizons in many industrial and catalysis applications. There are many crucial issues that could simply be solved by adopting the approach of micro reaction technology. Those issues are including harmful environmental impact which could be minimized through integrated separation techniques and reagent recycling used in micro reactors. There are also other issues including kinetic, thermodynamic, and process safety concerns. Moreover, chemical manufacturing has been enhanced through running reactions in continuous mode using flow chemistry. This lead to a great enhancement and improvement in solving many concerns related to particle size distribution, energy efficiency, surface to volume ratio, mass and heat transfer limitations, selectivity, high pressure, optimizing reaction conditions, scale-up issues, reproducibility, conversion, yield, process reliability, catalyst deactivation and recovery.
