A continuous flow reactor for nanoparticle synthesis comprises a modular system including a plurality of interconnected tubular components for fluid flow therethrough including a first tubular inlet and a second tubular inlet connected to a three-way junction comprising a tubular mixer. A continuous flow method for nanoparticle synthesis comprises flowing a growth solution and a reaction-initiating solution into a mixing portion of a flow reactor to form a mixed solution; flowing the mixed solution through a holding portion of the flow reactor for a predetermined residence time to form a reacted solution comprising nanoparticles; and continuously removing the reacted solution from the flow reactor so as to achieve a throughput of nanoparticles of at least about 0.5 mg/min.
