Archived: Organic Process Research and Development 2019

The Leading Process Chemistry Conference!

Date: 17 June - 19 June 2019

Time: 08.15 - 16.30

Location: Toronto, Canada


The efficient conversion of a chemical process into a process for manufacture on tonnage scale has always been of importance in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. However, in the current economic and regulatory climate, it has become increasingly vital and challenging to do so efficiently.

At Organic Process Research & Development Conference, you will hear detailed presentations and case studies from top international chemists. Our hand-picked programme of speakers has been put together specifically for an industrial audience. They will discuss the latest issues relating to synthetic route design, development and optimisation in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and allied fields.

Unlike other conferences, practically all our speakers are experts from industry, which means the ideas and information you take home will be directly applicable to your own work.

The smaller numbers at our conferences create a more intimate atmosphere. You will enjoy plenty of opportunities to meet and network with speakers and fellow attendees during the reception, sit-down lunches and extended coffee breaks in a relaxed and informal environment. Together, you can explore the different strategies and tactics evolving to meet today’s challenges.

This conference is sponsored by Eurofins Alphora, read our blog article:

Short Course - Organofluorine Chemistry- Past, Present and Future

Organofluorine Chemistry- Past, Present and Future

With a dramatic increase in the use of fluorine and fluorine containing functional groups in drugs, agrochemicals and advanced materials over the past decade, so the demand for safe, robust and scalable carbon-fluorine bond forming reactions has grown. Development of mild synthetic methods for late stage functionalization of complex molecules has led to advancements in the formation of both aryl- and alkyl-fluorine bonds under mild conditions with high efficiency and selectivity.

The aim of this short course is to highlight the reasons fluorine is ubiquitous in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries, summarize the traditional methods for preparing organofluorine compounds and highlight new developments in the field.

I really enjoyed the conference.  I thought that the range of talks was fantastic and the site trip was really interesting.  It was great hearing speakers from other industries that use organic chemistry (fragrances and flavours and using organic chemistry for LCDs).

Bristol-Myers Squibb

The quality of the talks was outstanding. I appreciated the fact that several facets of process research were covered in this conference. Truly learned a lot!

Eli Lilly

I thought it was an especially strong line-up this year and had a great time during my stay. As always Scientific Update put together a great line-up at great venues
