我期待着参加将于2013年在西雅图的华盛顿大学召开的第43届全美有机化学学术报告会 (NOCS) 。
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:
In the fall, I presented a paper at the 3rd International Symposium on Green Processing in the Pharmaceutical & Fine Chemical Industries in Boston. Continue reading
Toronto and Montreal are not only the two largest cities of Canada but also vibrant technology hubs. Continue reading
Now that the busy fall meeting season has come to an end, I wanted to take the opportunity to quickly revisit some highlights that my colleagues and I noted: Continue reading
By no means am I a flow chemistry expert, but as probably the case for many other chemists, continuous processing has piqued my interest over the past few years. Continue reading
On Tuesday, November 2, METTLER TOLEDO held its 1st Symposium in Cambridge, MA, hosted by Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR). The success of the Symposium went beyond expectations: 65 scientists representing a large variety of small companies (CoNCERT, Cubist, Tetraphase), larger companies (Pfizer, Dow, Amgen), and research institutions (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) attended the event. The main themes of the Symposium were crystallization and process safety. Des O’Grady and I started by giving an overview of the technologies later covered by the industry speakers: Focused Beam Reflectance Measurement (FBRM®), Particle Video Microscope (PVM®), EasyMax™, RC1, and ReactIR™.
