Over the years, organic synthesis has witnessed several improvements through the development of new chemical transformations or more efficient reagents for known processes. Likewise, technological advances, aiming at speeding up reactions and facilitating their work-up, have established themselves in academic as well as in industrial laboratories. In this Minireview, we highlight very recent developments in flow chemistry, focusing on organometallic reagents and catalysts. First, we describe reactions with homogeneous catalysts immobilized on different support materials using the concept of packed bed reactors. In the last chapter, we will discuss applications that utilize organometallic reagents. Down and up: Downscaling reaction vessels and moving to a continuous flow approach have not only advanced many reactions with respect to efficiency and safety, but also offer a reliable solution for upscaling chemical transformations. Examples in this Minireview demonstrate the use of sensitive metal-based reagents, substrates, and catalysts at extreme temperatures.
