35th SCI Process Development Symposium

Organised by:

SCI's Fine Chemicals Group

Cambridge

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

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.

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.


Attendees
The symposium aims to bring together a wide range of speakers from across the Pharmaceutical, Agrochemical and Fine Chemical industries, as well as from an academic background. This meeting brings together experts from across the entire spectrum of the discipline to present state of the art process development. As an established and well attended meeting, the process development symposium offers an excellent opportunity for networking between like-minded process scientists of all levels of experience and from all areas of the chemical industry.
