A Droplet Microfluidic Platform for High-Throughput Photochemical Reactions

22 April 2020, Version 1
This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


We report the development of a droplet microfluidic/mass spectrometry platform for performing high-throughput photochemical reaction discovery on picomole scale. We also describe the successful translation of picomole scale flow screening conditions to millimole scale flow operations, highlighting the utility of this platform for discovery chemistry applications.
