We have demonstrated the use of silyl enol ethers in the aldol reaction within a micro reactor. Quantitative conversion of the silyl enol ether to a beta-hydroxyketone was observed in a 20 min period compared to traditional batch systems, where quantitative yields were only obtained when extended reaction times of 24 h were employed.
