Abstract

Thirty-six pre-university chemistry students and two chemistry teachers used flow chemistry as a technology for the synthesis of methyl orange. FutureChemistry and VU University Amsterdam cooperatively created FlowStart Remote, a device that enabled the students to remotely conduct this synthesis and in real time monitor and control the device via a LabVIEW Web application. The students were able to conduct experiments under different conditions and became acquainted with flow chemistry in a safe way. The remotely controlled device can be shared among several upper-level secondary schools, giving access to experimentation for many students all over the world. © 2013 The American Chemical Society and Division of Chemical Education, Inc.
