Machine-Assisted Organic Synthesis.
Bottom Line: In this Review we describe how the advent of machines is impacting on organic synthesis programs, with particular emphasis on the practical issues associated with the design of chemical reactors.Additional technologies have been developed to facilitate more specialized reaction techniques such as electrochemical and photochemical methods.All of these areas create both opportunities and challenges during adoption as enabling technologies.

Mentions: Our group also recently reported how using a key electrochemical Shono oxidation in flow enabled efficient access to a number of unnatural analogues of the alkaloid nazlinine (Figure 20).91 The choice of incorporating electrochemistry in this instance, by using a commercially available unit (Figure 21), meant substoichiometric loadings of electrolyte (20 mol %) were sufficient to effect the necessary reactions.
