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: One of the most original examples of the use of microwaves in organic synthesis was reported in 2006 whereby a flowing‐through capillary equipped with a microwave reactor was developed (Figure 10).51 The use of this capillary‐microwave reactor has since proved to be effective in delivering a large variety of cross‐coupling reactions and nucleophilic substitutions.52
