The cells are transferred to a seed tank for further growth. The seed tank is a small fermentation vessel designed to optimize the growth of the inoculum. The cells from the seed tank are charged to a steam sterilized production fermentor. Sterilized nutrients and purified water are added to the vessel to begin the fermentation. During aerobic fermentation, the contents of the fermentor are heated, agitated and aerated by a perforated pipe or sparger, maintaining an optimum air flow rate and temperature. After the biochemical reactions are complete, the fermentation broth is filtered to remove the micro-organisms, or mycelia. The drug product, which may be present in the filtrate or within the mycelia, is recovered by various steps, such as solvent extraction, precipitation, ion exchange and absorption.

A simple system was used for heating continuously operated small tubular reactors by passing electric current directly through the reactor wall. All components are standard laboratory equipment with much lower cost compared to heating devices using electromagnetic fields or finely structured micro reactors. The voltages necessary for heating are low and all parts can be touched without the risk of electric shock. Additional insulation is unnecessary either for electric safety or for heat management, leading to a system where all tube connectors can be reached easily. This makes the device handy for facilitating changes of the reactors which could be necessary for the adjustment of residence time or catalyst exchange. Even contamination by residues of previous reactions is not a problem. The reactors are cheap standard tubes, so they can be discarded and replaced by new ones. With the design guidelines given here it is easy to set up a continuously operated mini reactor for chemical reactions using readily available laboratory equipment. In this sense it is an enabling technology allowing the use of continuous reactors at low cost, enlarging the portfolio of enabling technologies for organic synthesis []. Performing a simple organic reaction demonstrates that the concept of directly electrically heated tubular reactors is convenient in use and gives high heating rates. The pressure resistant system allows operation well beyond the boiling temperatures of most solvents. Due to the use of low diameter stainless steel tubing, pressures up to even more than 100 bar are feasible. The applicability for kinetic measurements at temperatures above the normal boiling point was shown for the heterogeneously catalyzed hydrolysis of methyl formate. As an example the activation energy and rate constants for an industrial ion exchange resin catalyst were determined. The system gives the opportunity to adjust accurately high heating rates with traditional resistive electric heating. This feature makes the device a tool well suited to compare the influence of heating rates on chemical reactions. Further studies will focus on the comparison of heating within microwave ovens and this method as well as the application in organic flow synthesis.

Wastes from chemical synthesis are complex due to the variety of hazardous materials, reactions and unit operations (Kroschwitz 1992; Theodore and McGuinn 1992). Organic synthesis processes may generate acids, bases, aqueous or solvent liquors, cyanides and metal wastes in liquid or slurry form. Solid wastes may include filter cakes containing inorganic salts, organic by-products and metal complexes. Waste solvents in organic synthesis are usually recovered by distillation and extraction. This allows the solvents to be reused by other processes and reduces the volume of liquid hazardous wastes to be disposed of. Residues from distillation (still bottoms) need to be treated before they are disposed. Typical treatment systems include steam stripping to remove solvents, followed by microbiological treatment of other organic substances. Volatile organic and hazardous substance emissions during organic synthesis operations should be controlled by air pollution control devices (e.g., condensers, scrubbers, venturi impingers).

flow reactors and continuous flow synthesis.

Until recently traditional heating in organic chemistry has been done with oil heating baths or using electric heat exchangers. With the advent of microwave equipment, heating by microwaves was rapidly introduced as standard method in organic chemistry laboratories, mainly because of the convenient possibility to operate at high temperature accompanied by accelerated reaction rates. In the present contribution we discuss the method of heating small, continuously operated reactors by passing electric current directly through the reactor wall as an enabling technology in organic chemistry. The benefit of this method is that the heat is generated directly inside the reactor wall. By this means high heating rates comparable to microwave ovens can be reached but at much lower cost for the equipment. A tool for the comparison of microwave heating and traditional heating is provided. As an example kinetic data for the acid catalyzed hydrolysis of methyl formate were measured using this heating concept. The reaction is not only a suitable model but also one of industrial importance since this is the main production process for formic acid.

The living anionic polymerization of styrene based monomers to homo- and diblock copolymers in continuous flow reduces the reaction time and experimental effort compared to classical batch methods (“break-seal” and “high vacuum” techniques).5 We successfully transferred the carbanionic polymerization of 2-vinyl pyridine from a common batch system to a micro structured reactor setup. Thereby we avoided the usually needed addition of salts and additionally no cooling was needed. In combination with the safer setup compared to batch systems the use of microreactors is a step to greener and more controlled processes.6 Also the functionalization of living carbanionic polymers with epoxide derivatives are of particular interest to obtain single hydroxyl or multiple orthogonal functionalities at the terminal position.7 A newly developed continuous polymerization-termination sequence enabled quantitative functionalization of living carbanions by utilizing different acetal-protected functional epoxides as termination reagents. Subsequent acidic-hydrolysis leads to multihydroxyl end functional polystyrenes.8

Organic synthesis in microflow systems has attracted increasing interest in the past decades. Recently this novel technology has been exploited for polymer chemistry and several polymerization techniques have been transformed from conventional systems to microfluidic devices.1 The micro structured reactors (inner dimensions: 10-100 micrometers) provide a high specific surface area with superior heat exchange properties and highly efficient mixing, which is due to special designed reactor geometry. The continuous flow enables the control of stoichiometry, temperature and reaction time during ongoing reactions.2 By the use of various mixing geometries specialized reactor setups can be designed for a variety of polymerization techniques.3
