Process Chemistry Conferences

Process Chemistry is the study of synthetic organic chemistry for preparing relatively large quantities of a chemical compound or intermediate on a industrial scale, generally for a substance that will be sold commercially. The work of process chemists involves analysis of the discovery route in terms of practicality, and usually the development and optimization of alternative synthetic methods (including more sustainable approaches) required to produce the target molecular entity in quantity. Process chemistry includes consideration of the starting materials, their commercial availability (large scale) and stability, also of reagents, catalysts, and solvents, and decisions on which purification methods to employ and at which stage(s). The chemical engineering part of the development efforts also involves consideration of the equipment required to carry out the synthesis steps, and the energy inputs necessary for heating, cooling, and the appropriate technology for crystallization, distillation, extraction, and even chromatography on larger scale.
