I’m currently working on a safety talk about RAMP and decided to include a section on “RAMPing up Reactions”

It was discussed at ACS that scaling up reactions is a under-stated danger in many chemistry laboratories.


Does anyone have any suggestion for articles that talks about or quantifies the risks of increasing the yield in chemical reactions?


For example: I found very informative and it would be great to find more sources.
