Abstract: There is an emerging interest in utilizing continuous flow microreactors as a platform to perform metal catalyzed multiphase reactions under intensified conditions. However, small characteristic dimensions of microreactors limit their widespread utilization in large-scale applications. Low throughput limitation of microreactors is addressed in this thesis for various reactor configurations via scaling-up of microreactors to mesoscale. Mesoscale reactor systems provide significantly higher throughput while retaining the similar physics of operation with small scale systems - regular and consistent flow regimes, and intensified heat and mass transport rates. The main objective of this thesis is to demonstrate scaling-up of microreactors to mesoscale for various multiphase reactions and understand the unique hydrodynamic phenomena of mesoscale operation.
