SELECTBIO Conferences Flow Chemistry Europe 2018: Emerging Themes and Trends in the Field


Sub-Micromolar Reaction Screening in Flow

Neal Sach, Senior Principal Scientist, Pfizer

As block-buster opportunities dwindle and personalized medicines prevail there is a strong drive to reduce drug development costs to ensure medicine discovery remains a viable proposition. One outcome of this changing landscape is the pressure to identify scalable synthetic routes at an earlier stage to minimize any delays in the transition from small scale pre-clinical work, to large scale patient studies. 

Chemical technologies have played a leading role in that goal over the past two decades with batch reaction screening tools being central to that progress. In this presentation, a new and novel flow technology will be detailed that enables miniature scale chemistry optimization experiments. The technology reduces the scale of each reaction to less than 0.01mg, enabling the user the ability to screen over 1500 combinations (solvent, base, catalyst, and temperature) automatically in 24 hours using just 15mg of substrate.  The presentation will demonstrate the technology through a model Suzuki coupling in which over 4500 combinations were attempted in 3 days to arrive at a scalable process suitable for scale up.
