RSC Speciality Chemicals Symposium: Continuous Flow Technology

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Speciality Chemicals Symposium 2011 focused on continuous flow technologies.

RSC Specialty Chemicals SymposiumHeld in Geneva, Switzerland on June 15 and 16, the conference had about 100 attendees and 20 companies exhibiting.

One highlight of the conference were the 12 presentations focused on technology used in continuous flow chemistry:

  • Comparison of Batch and Continuous Processes – Sergio Pissavini, Corning
  • Azide Synthesis in Microstructured Flow Systems – M. Weber, G. Wille, G. Yilmaz, Sigma-Aldrich
  • Chemical Synthesis and Efficient Scale-up in Flow Reactors – Paul Watts, Chemtrix
  • Industrial Production using Continuous Flow Technology – Peter McDonnell, Genzyme Ltd
  • Multi-stage CSTRs: Shaken, not Stirred – Gilda Gasparini, AM Technology
  • Continuous Manufacturing: How do We Make it Succeed in the Pharmaceutical Industry – Clive Badman, GlaxoSmithKline
  • Continuous Processing to Make Better Particles – Ian Laird, NiTech Solutions Ltd
  • Comparison of a Continuous Flow Process versus a Batch Process – Beat Weber, Siegfried
  • Growth of Continuous Flow Technologies in Pharma, Dominique Roberge – Lonza
  • Continuous Processes of Hazardous Reactions from Lab to Commercial Scale – Dr. Günter Weingärtner, Dottikon
