Crystallization at the AIChE 2010 Annual Meeting

While reviewing the technical program for the upcoming 2010 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Annual Meeting, I noticed several papers of interest to those of us who work in crystallization: Continue reading

In Process Particle Forum: Liquid and Solid Dosage Formulations

I am excited to be chairing the upcoming In Process Particle Forum focused on Liquid and Solid Dosage Formulations on September 15 in Woodbridge, NJ. This will be the third year in a row that METTLER TOLEDO has brought together expert users of FBRM and PVM to present their cutting edge research to a group of their peers. This year, we have the best agenda yet with four industry papers from:

  • Bristol-Myers Squibb
  • Merck
  • Johnson and Johnson
  • GlaxoSmithKline

Chemical & Engineering News: Highlighting Recent Letters Discussing Chemical Process Safety

A few months ago, I came across two letters in Chemical & Engineering News that I would like to bring to your attention. Both letters relate to ensuring the safety of chemical processes.

The first, from Tom Vickery and colleagues at Merck, made the point that a recently published procedure (for preparation of 2-bromo-3-methylbutenal) presents a safety issue with dramatic consequences for scale-up:

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.

View the Reducing Time to Manufacturing On-Demand Webinar.


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.
