More and more scientists routinely use reaction calorimetry thanks to the wider availability and affordability of advanced process calorimetry instruments, their larger volume range (from ml to multi-liter), and ease of use of intuitive software (iControl ). Continue reading
Reaction calorimetry provides information quickly which can be applied to quantify the risks and criticality associated with a chemical process. Reaction calorimetry helps identify key process parameters, including: Continue reading
Dave Johnson and I attended the 7th eChemExpo Conference at the Meadowview Convention Center in Kingsport, TN on May 23. Continue reading
Running a chemical reaction can require a great deal of supervision. Continue reading
While analytical technologies that support synthetic organic chemistry in the laboratory have changed dramatically, chemical synthesis itself has remained largely unchanged for over fifty years. During that time, the round bottom flask has been the workhorse for organic chemists in the synthesis lab. Continue reading
In the pharmaceutical industry today, several challenges exist in chemical development, including: Continue reading
Last week, I attended the VisiMix International Conference in Boston, MA. Held at the Colonnade Hotel, the conference focused on the influence of mixing unit operations in your process and featured presentations by well-respected leaders in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries on topics including: Continue reading
Upon returning to the Boston area after a number of years away, I was very much looking forward to attending The Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society (NESACS)’s Advances in Chemical Sciences “Bench to Plant” Symposium for the first time. Held in Cambridge on October 22, about 100 scientists from the local area gathered for the one day Symposium focusing on Process R&D Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, and New Synthetic Methodology.
Some highlights of the top-notch presentations included:
A common challenge faced by both chemists and engineers is how to achieve an enhanced understanding of the crystallization process.
The EasyMax has provided a powerful, yet nimble platform for chemists and engineers to get a lot of work done. It has been great to see how well the EasyMax has been embraced, especially for crystallization work. Simon Rea developed a way to make it even better for particle characterization:
At last, you can use the FBRM and PVM simultaneously in your EasyMax! This new PTFE lid makes it possible to see your: Continue reading
