Reactions at -78C on scale
« on: March 27, 2021, 11:23:07 PM »
So I have a question for the process chemists out there in industry...

If possible are reactions run at -78C avoided in possible when working in the kilo lab in 50 to 200 L reactors?

I assume so because doing larger reactions than that makes the chemistry hard to implement.

Just wondering what peoples thoughts are on this.

Cheers!
If you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the precipitate

I think you try to avoid this and probably many reaction run at -78 can be performed at -25 and this temperature can easily be accomplished with ordinary refrigiration.
