Cover Picture: Chemistry in Microstructured Reactors (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 4/2004)
Microstructured reactors such as the SuperFocus Interdigital micromixer offer an alternative to conventional large-scale techniques. Flow patterns with reduced layer thicknesses lead to enlarged reactive surfaces that result in short mixing times, and thus high-throughput reactions can be achieved. In their review on page 406 ff. K. Jähnisch, V. Hessel, et al. examine the potential of this new and powerful technology.
