(Figure Presented) Microchemical solvent switch: A continuous-flow, multistep Heck synthesis was made possible by integrating microreactors, liquid-liquid extraction, and microfluidic distillation. The microfluidic distil-lation enabled solvent exchange from CH2CI2 in the first reaction step to N,Ndimethylformamide (DMF) in the final reaction step.
