One training course – Three different perspectives  

We spoke to chemists at different stages of their careers about their experiences of attending our ‘Chemical Development and Scale Up in the Fine Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries’ training course. Ben Littler  Ben told us that he had taken the ‘Chem Dev’ course twice as an early career process chemist!  Both courses were held as

Scientific Update speak to Dr Dustin Bringley, Gilead ahead of his presentation at ‘Organic Process Research & Development’ Conference in New Orleans on 22-24 June 2022

The count down has begun and we only have one month to go now until we come to New Orleans for our ‘47th Organic Process R&D Conference’ on 22-24 June. We are so excited about holding this face to face event in such a vibrant brilliant location!  The 3 day meeting will include 16 presentations

Metal Hydride? NO Protection, NO Problem and NO-Where to Hide

Process chemists at Genentech recently published their work on development of a kilo-scale synthesis of JAK-1 inhibitor- GDC-4379 (Figure 1).1The central heterocyclic core of the molecule consists of a 4-aminopyrazole moiety (elaborated as the pyrazolopyrimidene amide- presumably the inhibitor hinge binding fragment in the kinase active site) with an additional aryl substituent at C-3 and

A Scalable Alternative to Chromium-Mediated Allylic Oxidation

Oxidation of allylic alcohols to enones, although on paper a simple reaction, usually requires insidiously toxic metals or metalloids such as chromium and selenium or hazardous peroxy- reagents.1 Scale-up of these methods remains particularly challenging. A team from GSK found themselves in precisely this position when developing a synthetic route to a steroid-derived HIV maturation

Scientific Update – changing with the times during covid-19

As businesses around the world have had to postpone and cancel live meetings, conferences and training courses in response to COVID-19 disease, workplace and group training has become one of the earliest and hardest-hit business activities. We have found that 100% of companies we work with across the globe, have had to postpone or cancel their

Working with Britest on a new course on Chemical Engineering

Britest is a leading exponent of whole process design for the chemical, pharma and other process manufacturing industries. We are pleased to be collaborating with Britest on our course ‘Chemical Engineering: What Scientists and other Engineers Need to Know’. This course has been developed, and is presented, by chemical engineers and chemists who specialise in facilitating knowledge
