Flow Chemistry for Process Development
News Aug 11, 2016
Presenters from Nalas Engineering and Snapdragon will discuss emerging approaches for continuous flow chemistry.
Continuous flow chemistry has facilitated the use of synthetic steps that are currently unattainable with batch processes because they have mixing limitations or are too exothermic.
METTLER TOLEDO has announced an upcoming online symposium entitled Flow Chemistry for Process Development, featuring speakers from Snapdragon and Nalas Engineering. This free online seminar will be held on October 27, 2016 at 10:00 AM ET.
Using case studies from the pharmaceutical industry, this online seminar will focus on continuous flow chemistry. Topics include how to use continuous flow chemistry with Process Analytical Technology (PAT) to expedite process development. Both talks will be followed by a live question and answer session with the presenter.
Jerry Salan of Nalas Engineering will present "Accelerated Process Development Using an Advanced Flow Reactor". Eric Fang of Snapdragon will present "Development of Continuous Flow Chemistry Using PAT Analyses".
Chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical companies are investing in continuous chemical process development to decrease costs and speed up the delivery of new molecules to the market. Continuous flow chemistry has facilitated the use of synthetic steps that are currently unattainable with batch processes because they have mixing limitations or are too exothermic. Novel development of continuous flow reactors has provided robust solutions which can deliver a number of distinct advantages over a more traditional batch process. When coupled with process analytical technology (PAT), flow chemistry allows for rapid analysis, optimization, and scale-up of a chemical reaction. This online seminar features two industry experts with backgrounds in academia as well as the pharmaceutical and chemical industries addressing how flow chemistry integrated with in situ reaction analysis accelerates development of robust chemical processes.
This free online seminar is for chemists and chemical engineers in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries as well as academia. There is no fee to attend. However, registration is required.
Exploring Challenges in the Synthesis of Pharmaceutical DrugsNews
This summer, Wendell and Loretta Hess Professor of Chemistry Ram Mohan will travel to India and Hong Kong to deliver a series of post-graduate workshops on advanced concepts in organic synthesis.
His workshop “Advanced Concepts in the Synthesis of Pharmaceutical Drugs” at the Indian Institute of Technology Indore will explore the unique, real-world challenges in the pharmaceutical industry to synthesize drugs that are both commercially viable and eco-friendly.
Modern Alchemists are Making Chemistry GreenerNews
Ancient alchemists tried to turn lead and other common metals into gold and platinum. Modern chemists in Paul Chirik’s lab at Princeton are transforming reactions that have depended on environmentally unfriendly precious metals, finding cheaper and greener alternatives to replace platinum, rhodium and other precious metals in drug production and other reactions.READ MORE
