The development of molecules at laboratory scale is often followed by a “scale-up” stage. This operation involves development to overcome difficulties in terms of engineering, safety and cost.

Understanding the principles of reaction mixing is the key to successfully scale-up a chemical reaction. In a tank reactor, for example, chemical reactions often involve mixtures of reactants in several physical states, whether liquid, gas or solid. This requires massive interface contact. Incorrect or poor mixing can lead to reduced reaction rates, increased reaction impurities and reduced yields, often resulting in increased manufacturing costs.

The parameters of scale-up development are therefore very important in order to be able to control yield and optimise it to reduce production costs as much as possible.
