13 Oct 2015

Chemists from the fields of pharmaceuticals, agrichemicals and fine and speciality chemicals have gained from recent innovations in Flow Technology for example in handling reactive species safely, optimizing reactions, novel chemistries, scaling up experiments, and telescoping procedures.  Continuous Flow Technology can give benefits in a number of areas across the industry – should you learn more about it?

At the SCI/RSC Continuous Flow Technology III conference 2016, scientists from all disciplines will come together to present the breakthroughs with this technology. Synthetic chemists, process development chemists, chemical engineers and plant managers can discover what Flow is and how they can benefit from it, while experts in the field will present the latest developments and cutting edge research.

Attendees can hear about novel techniques and applications of Flow for molecule makers, or learn how to decide whether process equipment is fit for purpose. State of the art science from the interface between chemistry and engineering give the symposium a broad and informative program. Leading vendors in the field will also be in attendance to showcase the latest in Flow chemistry hardware, with the option to present their recent advances.

Over the three days, SCI’s Fine Chemicals Group together with RSC’s Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector and Speciality Chemicals Sector, will deliver sessions on three different themes. The conference combines two previously successful symposia to cater for a full range of interests and applications. 

Attendees can mix and match presentations and posters on Continuous Flow Technology in the areas of Discovery, Process Development and Commercial Manufacture to create their ideal symposium program, with the option to attend two consecutive days or the entire event.

Confirmed Speakers include –

  • Professor Ian Baxendale, Durham University, UK
  • Professor Klavs Jensen, MIT, USA                                                        
  • Professor C Oliver Kappe, University of Graz, Austria                            
  • Dr John Naber, Merck, USA
  • Mr Andrew Rutter, GlaxoSmithKline, UK
  • Dr Charlotte Wiles, Chemtrix, The Netherlands

There will also be talks from Lilly, Novartis, Syngenta, Pfizer, MediChem, AstraZeneca and Perceptive Engineering & CMAC.

Call for Posters
Papers are invited for poster presentations. An abstract template is available via the link below and should be completed and sent by email to patricia.cornell@soci.org by Monday 30 November 2015. Flash presentation sessions are planned which will involve a two-minute presentation of poster highlights. Please indicate whether or not you would like to be considered for this when submitting your abstract.
