SERMACS 2012 – Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society

How to do more with less is a consistent theme in today’s chemical development laboratories. Researchers are challenged with how quickly and cost-effectively they can deliver high quality chemical products and the processes used to make them. This in turn has driven a trend in industry to develop and adopt new methods of working, and new techniques to analyze chemical reactions. Continue reading

Workflow for Linearity Testing using Automated Sample Preparation and UHPLC

When validating a method according to the International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) guidelines, it is necessary to perform a linearity experiment. This requires the preparation of multiple calibration levels, analysis of the samples by liquid chromatography, and calculation/reporting of the results. Each of these steps can be very time consuming, and in many cases error prone. This is especially true if the analytical method being tested requires the measurement of multiple components.

Use of Process Analytical Technology (PAT) for Biotech

Process Analytical Technology (PAT) for Biotech: A Review of Recently Reported Applications in Fermentation and BioProcessing

Fermentation and bioprocessing play critical roles in the discovery and manufacture of new pharmaceuticals and specialty chemicals, and in the sustainable production of bulk fuels and commodity chemicals. Yet fermentation processes are often operated with a minimal level of monitoring and control, limiting the ability to optimize yields and production rates. Continue reading

How Has Organic Chemistry Changed in Academia?

Traditionally, organic chemistry students have been instructed to analyze reactions using standard offline analytical methods, such as High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy, and Gas Chromatography (GC).

How To Study Chemistry Under Actual Reaction Conditions

Traditional offline methods to analyze reaction chemistry, such as High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy, and Gas Chromatography (GC), share a common problem: when a sample is removed for analysis, it may be altered or compromised resulting in significant analytical errors. The solution for this is Continue reading

How To Overcome Process Scale-Up Challenges Using Process Analytical Technology (PAT)

Process Analytical Technology for Scale-up

Process Analytical Technology

During Part I of his two part The Role of Process Analytical Technology (PAT) in Green Chemistry and Green Engineering online seminar series, Dominique Hebrault discussed scale-up challenges faced today by chemists and engineers.  Too often, offline sampling methods – mostly chromatographic methods such as High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) or Gas Chromatography (GC) – are used to monitor processes which fail to resolve common issues like reaction monitoring, poor mass balance, delayed initiation/reaction stalled, and loss of yield/by-products.  From a reaction engineering standpoint, obtaining heat mass balance information and preliminary kinetic data can be difficult using traditional offline methods during process scale-up.  Forming the final solid can be challenging using traditional offline methods, including filtration/drying a bottleneck, excessive washing, polymorph inconsistency, and batch to batch variability can be difficult.
