Time: 12.30pm - 1.00pm

Location: Manchester

** Our Exhibition is now full **

Please contact us for other sponsorship options

The 5th Winter Process Conference will showcase presentations from International Chemists covering all aspects of Process Development.

The speakers will discuss the latest issues in synthetic route design, development and optimisation, reactor design, work up and purification, crstallisation, process engineering, hazard studies and quality and regulatory issues.

The presentations will be either from speakers within the chemical industry or academics with a strong link to industrial process development so the material presented with be of particular relevance to all chemists and engineers in industry as well as graduate students considering a career in industry.

Tuesday 11 December 2018 | 6.00pm Welcome Reception

Optional Short Course - Synthesis of Pharmaceutically Important Molecules | A Retrosynthetic Analysis

Synthesis of Pharmaceutically Important Molecules | A Retrosynthetic Analysis
Presented by Professor P J Parsons | Imperial College London

Thursday 13 December 2018 | 2.00 – 5.00pm 

The course will be involved with the strategic analysis of organic molecules in general and biologically active molecules in particular. The course will begin with a description and definition of the terms used in retrosynthetic analysis; specific chemical examples will be used in order to exemplify the definitions used during this short course. The course will aim to show how complexity in molecules can be reduced to avoid multistep sequences.

Methods for the control of stereochemistry will be discussed which will include nitrone  and nitrile oxide cycloadditions, the Diels Alder reaction in its various forms and it’s use to work forward in a synthesis in order to plan retrosynthesis of complex molecules. Retro synthetic analysis for cascade cyclisations and radical chemistry will also form a part of this course.

Selected examples from the presenters own research will be discussed in relation to  cascade reactions for the rapid assembly of biologically important molecules.
