Process Development at AIChE 2010

While reviewing the agenda for next month’s American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Annual Meeting, I noticed a number of papers and posters discussing process development in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and academia: Continue reading

Reducing Time to Manufacturing Using Real-time In Situ FTIR Analytics as a Process Analytical Technology (PAT) Tool – On-Demand Webinar

The on-demand version of the Reducing Time to Manufacturing Using Real-time In Situ FTIR Analytics as a Process Analytical Technology (PAT) Tool webinar that I presented on January 20 is now available.

During this on-demand webinar, I review case studies from the pharmaceutical industry to show how real-time mid-infrared (mid-IR) analytics provide critical information that results in shorter process development timelines, including:

  • Intermediate detection during an indazole alkylation and scale-up – Pfizer
  • Hazardous gas detection during tetrazole synthesis – Merck
  • Monitoring a Grignard reaction at the multikilogram scale – Bristol-Myers Squibb
  • Scale-up involving a sensitive enolate – Johnson and Johnson (J&J)

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, then please contact me.
