Abstract

We present a new generic replication technique for the production of microfluidic devices: Phase Separation Micro Molding (PSμM). This technique offers four advantages: a) cheap and simple; b) very broad range of applicable materials; c) possibility to make thin flexible chips and d) possibility to introduce and tune porosity in the chip. The combination of these advantages can be used for improvement of conventional microfluidics, but also for integration of unit operations and complete new applications. We will give a proof of principle by showing that a porous chip can be used as a gas-liquid contactor.
