Scientific Update Young Chemist Award Winners 2019 Announcement

Scientific Update are delighted to announce the winners of our Young Chemist Award. The standard of entries for this new award were incredibly high and Dr Will Watson, Technical Director and Dr John Studley, Science Director had a difficult task selecting the winners. Due to the quality of entries it was decided to stretch to

Engineering life into new chemical transformations

Nature has had many generations to optimise its catalytic processes. As a result they are both extremely efficient and exquisitely selective. Biocatalysis is now very much a mainstay of industrial organic synthesis, particularly with the advent of protein engineering and directed evolution enabling the preparation of robust enzymes fine-tuned to a particular substrate. The importance

Syn-3-Fluoro-4-aminopiperidine- a story from multiple orientations

If Nature could re-write her proteinogenic amino acid instruction manual I’m fairly sure that a piperidine ring would feature in there somewhere. Perhaps in the spirit of less is more the pyrrolidine ring won out. Not so for human synthetic engineers- the piperidine ring is ubiquitous in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and advanced materials and is the
