Syrris Invites Chemists to Join Free Flow Chemistry Workshop in the US
News Apr 22, 2013
The latest in a successful global series of workshops, the event will combine theoretical discussion with hands-on sessions, enabling chemists to develop their understanding of the many and varied benefits of flow chemistry.
Previous workshops have been a resounding success, and Syrris has received lots of positive feedback from participants. Dr B.R. Shah, R&D manager at Excel Crop Care Ltd, commented: “The delivery of information was very good. Demonstrations of flow chemistry instruments were informative and practical”. Building on this, US delegates now have the opportunity to take advantage of the Company’s extensive knowledge and experience to learn how to perform reactions that are not possible using traditional techniques, and to see for themselves how flow chemistry can provide safer, faster and cleaner reactions. The theoretical and practical aspects of flow chemistry – including reaction optimization – will be covered, including demonstrations of a range of experiments using the award-winning Asia Flow Chemistry system.
Researchers Develop Novel ‘One-pot’ Approach to Conjugated Tetraenes SynthesisNews
TUAT researchers have achieved the new synthetic route of conjugated tetraenes from inexpensive and easily available 1,3-butadiene and substituted acetylenes by a one-pot approach under mild conditions. Conjugated tetraenes are important key substructures in biologically active natural products such as vitamins, and anti-mycotic drugs.READ MORE
