In this contribution we describe the results of a study into the thermal and thermo-mechanical behavior of a high temperature micro gas reactor for investigation of the intrinsic reaction kinetics of rhodium-catalyzed direct catalytic partial oxidation (CPO) of methane into synthesis gas. The chip comprises a flow channel etched in silicon, capped with a(More)
Magnetic field B0 gradients are essential in modern Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy and imaging. Although RF/B1 gradients can be used to fulfill a similar role, this is not used in common practice because of practical limitations in the design of B1 gradient coils. Here we present a new method to create B1 gradients using stripline RF coils. The(More)
This paper describes the design, realization and characterization of a micromachined light detection cell. This light detection cell is designed to meet the specifications needed for a micro total analysis system in which ammonia is converted to indophenol blue. The concentration of indophenol blue is measured in a light detection cell. The light detection(More)
Silicon is one of the main components of commercial solar cells and is used in many other solar-light-harvesting devices. The overall efficiency of these devices can be increased by the use of structured surfaces that contain nanometer- to micrometer-sized pillars with radial p/n junctions. High densities of such structures greatly enhance the(More)
A polymer-brush-based material was applied for the formation and in situ immobilization of silver and palladium nanoparticles, as a catalytic coating on the inner wall of glass microreactors. The brush film was grown directly on the microchannel interior by means of atom-transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), which allows control over the polymer film(More)

Microfluidic devices may offer various advantages for forensic DNA analysis, such as reduced risk of contamination, shorter analysis time and direct application at the crime scene. Microfluidic chip technology has already proven to be functional and effective within medical applications, such as for point-of-care use. In the forensic field, one may expect(More)
The esterification reaction of phthalic anhydride with methanol was performed at different temperatures in a continuous flow glass microreactor at pressures up to 110 bar and using supercritical CO(2) as a co-solvent. The design is such that supercritical CO(2) can be generated inside the microreactor. Substantial rate enhancements were obtained, viz. a(More)
In this work we show the functionalization of the interior of microfluidic glass chips with poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) polymer brushes as anchors for co-immobilization of the enzymes glucose-oxidase and horseradish peroxidase. The formation of the brush layer and subsequent immobilization of these enzymes have been characterized on flat surfaces by(More)
We have developed a stripline-based microfluidic device for on-chip microscale nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), which is characterized by performing NMR experiments on a 0.2 μl ethanol sample. This NMR stripline-based device, which has an improved mechanical stability, presents an enhanced sensitivity (3.7·10 spins/ (Hz)) and achieves a(More)
