Taming hazardous chemistry in flow: The continuous processing of diazo and diazonium compounds
Deadman, Benjamin J.
Collins, Stuart G.
Maguire, Anita R.
The synthetic utilities of the diazo and diazonium groups are matched only by their reputation for explosive decomposition. Continuous processing technology offers new opportunities to make and use these versatile intermediates at a range of scales with improved safety over traditional batch processes. In this minireview, the state of the art in the continuous flow processing of reactive diazo and diazonium species is discussed.
