FLOW2015_banner230x120px.jpgFlow chemistry, sometimes referred to as plug flow, microchemistry or continuous flow chemistry is the process of performing chemical reactions in tubular or microfluidic chip-based systems, with well-defined lateral dimensions, in which chemical reactions take place in a continuous stream within in a well-defined temporal and spatial environment. Continuous flow chemistry has been widely used in the chemical and petrochemical markets and has been gaining interest in pharmaceutical R&D and cosmetics due to: improved process safety, improved quality, space savings, increased product capacity. The major advantages of flow chemistry are faster reactions, cleaner products, safer reactions, quick reaction optimization, easy scale-up, and the integration of typically separate processes (such as synthesis, work-up and analysis). The aim of this appointment is to widespread this technology among the industry: this because there are no specific University courses dealing with Flow chemistry. To do this, Teknoscienze has organized on the first day of the event a Training course both for Beginners and Experts. Moreover attendees can choose whether to follow in the afternoon the advanced theoretical session or a practical session at TNO’s facility – the so called “hands on” session. Six companies will perform a different reaction and complete the demonstration with an analytical essay. The conference will focus on real case studies on pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals and will give an insight on economic features. Downstream processing, analytical technologies and auxiliary equipment issues will be also taken into consideration. This event is a response to many high demanding issues chemistry is facing today, an opportunity to contribute to a real and effective innovation.
