A conceptual nitro reduction process template that should be generic such that it can handle a series of substrates with sim ilar molecular functionality has been designed. The reduction process is based on a continuo us plug-flow slurry reactor. The process template aims at speeding up the process development for new substrates by being easily adapted for a range of substrates as well as easily scaled by numbering-up. The potential saving in process development time could make it a particularly powerful experimental tool for early delivery campaigns in the pharmaceutical industry for the production of Kg amounts of material for clinical trials.
