Modeling, optimization, and the realization of an electroosmotically driven chemical microsynthesis system for Wittig reactions are presented. Essential for good functioning of the chemical liquid reaction system is controllability of the supplied chemicals, independently of the reservoir heights. System analysis turned out to be crucial for designing new improved chips. In the article the main aspects of development are discussed.
