There has been increased interest shown in the area of microphotochemistry as it can be utilised for a wide range of synthetic applications.[1,2] Generally speaking, micro-photoreactors have a number of advantages over conventional batch photoreactors, which also makes them more beneficial for 'green chemistry':

• the thin layers within the micro-channel plates are optimal reaction cavities and allow extensive penetration of the solution by light (® Beer-Lambert's law),

• the photon-efficiencies and consequently space-time yields are improved due to the thinness of the solution,

• the short residence time within the reactors avoid undesired side reactions or decompositions,

• the small scales significantly reduce the amounts of waste and materials and

• energy- and cost-efficient LEDs can be implemented as light sources.
