Inside Cover: Monolithic and Flexible Polyimide Film Microreactors for Organic Microchemical Applications Fabricated by Laser Ablation (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 39/2010)
A monolithic and flexible polyimide film microreactor with passive mixing patterns is fabricated by laser ablation. In their Communication on page 7063 ff. D. P. Kim and co-workers show the excellent stability of these film microreactors by using them to perform various organic synthesis reactions under harsh conditions. The simple fabrication and the facile adhesive sealing step facilitate mass production of this flexible film microfluidic device.
