Abstract

Efficient uniform mixing is an essential process for chemical reaction. However, it is difficult to fabricate many tiny stirrers on reactor chips. This paper shows a new method promoting high-efficient chemical reaction in micro chamber. To stir chemicals and to accelerate reaction catalytic particles are driven electrostatically in micro chamber. Two driving methods have been evaluated,” AC drive and DC drive. Evaluation of chemical reactions revealed the effect of this developed devices. In addition conveyance system of catalytic particles is necessary for particles exchange. Keywords: micro reactor, electrostatic, shake, particles conveyance.
