Volker HesselKeynote Presentation

Reaction Networks in Flow – "End-to-end” after Activating the “Drop-in”
Volker Hessel, Professor, Eindhoven University of Technology, Australia

So far, flow chemistry was busy with activating “microreactor drop-in” for pharmaceutical synthesis. Nature works with continuous bioassembly lines in its metabolic pathways. The biomimetic analogue here is a chemobio catalyst-based reaction network in flow. With such view on “end-to-end process design”, multi-step flow chemistry (including nanoparticle synthesis) will be presented, revealing the challenges and bottlenecks, thus pointing at future research issues.

14:45

Engineering of Catalytic Flow Processes
Alexei Lapkin, Professor, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom

The talk will focus on development of supports and new catalysts that can be used as true heterogeneous catalysts in a variety of reactions of broad synthetic utility. Problems of catalyst leaching, reactor blockages, etc, will be addressed and various engineering solutions, including reactor design, discussed.
