The implementation of advanced reactor engineering concepts employing additive manufg. is demonstrated. The design and manufg. of miniaturized continuous flow oscillatory baffled reactors (mCOBR) employing low cost stereolithog. based 3D printing is reported for the first time. Residence time distribution expts. have been employed to demonstrate that these small scale reactors offer improved mixing conditions at a millimetre scale, when compared to tubular reactors. Nearly monodisperse silver nanoparticles have been synthesized employing mCOBR, showing higher temporal stability and superior control over particle size distribution than tubular flow reactors.
