25 March - 27 March 2015

32nd SCI Process Development Symposium

Organised by:

SCI’s Fine Chemicals Group

Churchill College, Cambridge, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

The area of Process Development continues to be a challenging and important area for the research into and application of modern synthetic organic chemistry, as well as enabling technologies. Process Development is the application of chemistry to the scale up of new synthetic processes from the laboratory, through pilot plant to full scale commercial manufacture and into life cycle management. It is an extremely broad discipline, crossing the boundaries between synthetic organic chemistry, process technology and chemical engineering.


Attendees

The symposium aims to bring together a wide range of speakers and delegates from across the Pharmaceutical, Agrochemical and Fine Chemical industries, as well as from an academic background.
