Abstract

The synthesis of multifunctionalized organic molecules is challenging because multiple functional groups frequently causes unexpected side reactions. The recent emergence of microflow technology has offered a new solution to this problem. Herein, we wish to describe our recent achievements in the microflow synthesis of multifunctionalized molecules such as vitamin D and peptides.
