This account presents an overview of our recent endeavors to achieve practical organic syntheses using a variety of microreaction devices. Herein are our achievements in ionic liquid-based catalytic reactions, photochemical transformation, and heterogenous hydrogenation reactions, where flow regime precisely controls residence time and product selectivity.
