Abstract

Two experimental methods, the Nile Red dye extraction and the Williamson ether synthesis in biphasic conditions, were used to characterize the mixing performance of a new cheap impinging jet colliding mixer from Gjosa and to compare it to other commercial micromixers (Caterpillar CPMM-R300, T-mixer, LTF MR-MX and LTF MR-MS). The Nile Red method shows that the Caterpillar mixer is the best one. Excellent results are also achieved with two Gjosa mixers in series. These results are not reflected in the Williamson ether synthesis, where the best mixer is the Gjosa one.
