Current inorganic lab setups do not allow students to use time in lab efficiently and does not allow students to do repeat runs of reactions due to time and material restraints. By implementing a 3D printed continuous flow reactor into the experiment students would be able to redo experiments in class without creating large amounts of waste, all while using a system that was created on campus at a reasonable price. It was found that a mixing chamber with an isobaric design created an environment that allowed complete mixing before reaching a point at which measurements are taken.
