Archived: Organic Process Research and Development

The Leading Process Chemistry Conference!

Date: 29 October - 31 October 2018

Location: Meliá Milano, Italy

Time: 08.15 - 16.30

Organic Process Research & Development is an international conference for industrial organic chemists working in process research & development. 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.

Thanks to all our sponsors:

Short Course - Polymorphism & Crystallisation

This short course will start with an introduction and overview on the subject of crystallisation and polymorphism, and will then include a series of case studies designed to examine particular aspects of the subject.  The case studies will include modifying a crystallisation to control particle size distribution, the issue of appearing and disappearing solid forms, such as polymorphs, hydrates, and solvates, and show how various companies approach different problems.  In addition some comments on online and offline analysis of crystallisation systems will be included.

 Tutor: Dr Will Watson | Scientific Update Ltd

 Tuesday 30 October 2018 | 2.00pm until 5.30pm
Short course fee = €360.00

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
