The Vortex Fluidic Device functions under continuous flow processing conditions by delivering reagents to the bottom of a rapidly rotating tube that is tilted relative to the horizontal position.

The complex fluidics dynamics within thin films in the Vortex Fluidic Device comprise an important additional tool for chemists. This induced mechanoenergy can be harnessed for different applications, for example in accelerating organic reactions at room temperature, often without the need for heating, and unlike conventional batch processing.

The intense micro-mixing and the resulting thin film (down to approximately 250 microns) created by the Vortex Fluidic Device provides high heat and mass transfer that results in all molecules being essentially treated in the same way. Processing using the VFD is beyond diffusion control, is high in green chemistry metrics, and enables the ability to study reactions in real time using a range of modular attachments to examine various parameters.
