    Abstract

    A silicon chip for attenuated total reflection (ATR) Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy in combination with a modular PDMS herringbone mixer and a microreactor has been successfully fabricated and tested. The modular design allows the chip to be used for a variety of reactions. A model synthesis of 1-butyl-2,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrrole from hexane-2,5-dione with 1-butylamine has been performed on chip. When plotting the natural logarithm of the peak area corresponding to the ketone stretch vibration at 1710cm-1, against the residence time, a linear curve can be fitted, suggesting this step to be a first order reaction.
