Micro and Continuous Flow Reactors for Industrial Scale Organic Synthesis

Held in conjunction with Flow Chemistry Europe

17 Feb 2014, at 09:00 - 17:00 in Barcelona, Spain


Who Should Attend?

Chemists and Chemical Engineers from Industry, Research & Academia who are involved in basic research in Chemical synthesis, Bio-processing, Pharmaceutical, Fine chemical, Petrochemical, Agrochemical or related synthetic topics, including Medicinal, Organic and High-throughput Chemists, Nanotechnology in addition to scientists involved in Process Development. A basic knowledge of chemistry is required.

The course is designed to make participants familiar with this emerging field and improve the productivity of synthetic processes resulting in substantial cost saving.  This course will be valuable to both industrial and academic researchers currently involved with or intending to become active in the area of Continuous Flow Synthesis.What will I gain by attending?

• Obtain a State of Art introduction and training in Continuous Flow Synthesis.

• Understand the Theory and Concepts behind Micro and Continuous Reactors

• Become familiar with all major types of commercially available equipment

• Learn to apply Flow Technology to your Synthetic Chemistry problems

• Learn about a diverse set of chemistries and applications during the course

• Find out about future trends in Micro Reactor Chemistry in particular in Chemical and Biological Processing and Scale-up

• Discover where to look for more advanced information

With time allowed for open questions and discussion, this one day will enable the audience to get to grips with most of the issues involved in Micro Reactors and Continuous Flow Production. All participants will receive a comprehensive set of notes in CD-ROM format consisting of the material presented in the morning and afternoon sessions.

Agenda 9:00am-5:00pm (with coffee and lunch breaks provided)
