Abstract

Recording reaction kinetics in detail and at various reaction conditions can be a time-consuming process. Microdroplets form ideal reaction chambers, suitable for high-throughput studies [1]. We report the fabrication of a microfluidic droplet-based microreactor operating at elevated temperatures (up to 130 °C) and pressures (up to 0.7 MPa), to rapidly study reaction kinetics. As proof-of-principle, the temperature-dependent fluorescence of Rhodamine B in ethanol is monitored [2]. Time-resolved information is obtained by measuring at multiple spots in the microreactor
