Regular visitors to this blog will be familiar with recent continuous flow chemistry events in what I consider to be a very exciting, fast-developing area of chemistry. When I was reading the recent blog post regarding the upcoming Pfizer Flow Technology Expo, I thought about other upcoming flow chemistry events, including:
- Enabling and Optimizing Chemical Reactions in Real Time Flow Chemistry and In Situ Analysis Workshop, Anaheim, CA – March 28, 2011 3:30 to 6:00PM – Being held in conjunction with the 241st American Chemical Society (ACS) Spring Meeting, this seminar will discuss how to use flow chemistry and in situ analysis to improve existing chemistry.
- 1st International Conference of The Flow Chemistry Society, Munich, Germany – March 28-29, 2011 – Agenda topics will include Meso Flow Chemistry, Microfluidic Flow Chemistry, and New Directions in Flow Chemistry. During the Technology Spotlight session on Tuesday, March 29 at 12:15, Michael Kleimann will give the presentation: Enhanced Development and Control of Continuous Processes.
- Flow Chemistry Congress, Boston, MA – April 28-29, 2011 – The Flow Chemistry Society (FSC) initiated this inaugural event. Agenda topics will include Meso Flow Chemistry, Lab to Pilot Scale, Microfluidic Flow Chemistry, and New Directions in Flow Chemistry. For the Flow Chemistry Congress, the call for posters deadline is March 17, 2011.
- The Optimization of Selective Flow Chemistry Using Inline FTIR Analysis, Online Seminar – May 11, 2011 – During this webinar, Richard Jones, Director of Product Management for ThalesNano, will discuss flow chemistry and how it is used to safely perform hazardous reactions. Chemistry examples will include hydrogenation, carbonylation, and ozonolysis.
