Abstract: The cyclodehydration of a number of Bohlmann–Rahtz aminodienones exemplifies the use of continuous flow processing to transfer operations from commercial microreactors and microwave batch reactors to mesoscale production using different technology platforms, including a microwave flow reactor.

This paper was performed on the AFRICA system which was replaced by the Asia system in 2012.
