The Value of In-Situ Analytics within Process Development

This webinar has been broadcast.
A recording is now available on-demand.

Presented by Jon Goode Technical and Applications Consultant
Jon is a technical and applications consultant for the infrared reaction analysis laboratory and production business. He is also responsible for business development in the flow chemistry market.

Using illustrative case studies, Jon Goode, Technical and Applications Consultant, Mettler Toledo presents how in situ mid infrared spectroscopy can be used to provide insight into crystallisation processes, facilitating chemical, energy and material efficiencies downstream.

To register for this webinar, you will first need to be a registered and logged-in user of the SCI website. Once logged-in, your profile details will automatically be passed through to the webinar registration process.


Webinar Overview

Proper integration of process analytical technologies and process control result in information-rich experiments that can expedite chemical process development and facilitate both energy and material efficiencies downstream. One such analytical technology is in-situ mid infrared spectroscopy,  which is a well-established method of obtaining real time information on chemical reactions.

We will present this technology and show how it can be used to provide an insight into crystallisation processes.

Several case studies will be discussed illustrating how small scale laboratory investigations of crystallisations using in situ infrared (ReactIRTM) helped to identify the cause of downstream processing  problems on plant.

In addition, we will present a simple “model free” method [1] of automating a cooling crystallisation using both in situ infrared spectroscopy (ReactIRTM) and particle size characterisation (ParticleTrackTM) to consistently produce product with the correct particle size distribution.
