I am very much looking forward to attending the 19th Larson Workshop – ACT (Association for Crystallization Technology) conference in Indianapolis next week (October 6-9).
I recently helped some colleagues and customers with literature references on the use of real time in situ mid-IR spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) applied to flow chemistry. Considering all the reaction condition improvements (yields, purity, simplicity) described in these papers, I thought I would share the list with the chemical community. The papers are from a variety of academic research groups including Klavs Jensen at MIT (USA), Steven Ley and Ian Baxendale at the University of Cambridge (UK), Paul Knochel in Munich (Germany) and Floris Rutjes in the Netherlands. There are also a few papers from Industry, e.g. Merck (USA), and Pfizer (USA). Continue reading
