Those who have gone on to discover and develop new products have typically done so using these batchwise techniques. This mind-set has continued through the piloting and scaleup phase, so that today, many chemical products are produced batchwise in large, continuously stirred reactors. This paradigm is now being challenged by microreactor technology, whereby
