The manufacturing of a three-dimensional product from a computer-driven digital model (3D printing) has found extensive applications in several fields. Additive manufacturing technologies offer the possibility to fabricate ad hoc tailored products on demand, at affordable prices, and have been employed to make customized and complex items for actual sale. However, despite the great progress and the countless opportunities offered by the 3D printing technology, surprisingly a relatively limited number of applications have been documented in organic chemistry. This review will focus specifically on the exploitation of additive manufacturing technologies in the synthesis of organic compounds, and, in particular, on the use of 3D-printed catalysts and 3D printed reactors, and on the fabrication and use of 3D printed flow reactors.
