Flow Chemistry

Presented by Professor Oliver Kappe and Dr Will Watson

Date: 12 April - 15 April 2021

Location: Online Event

Tutors: Professor C Oliver Kappe, Dr Will Watson

We are delighted to be able to bring this popular course On Line, this two day course will be delivered over four afternoon sessions via an on line platform, the dates and times are as follows:

Monday, April 12th | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST
Tuesday, April 13th 
| 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST
Wednesday, April 14th | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST
Thursday, April 15th | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST

Flow chemistry has been used in petrochemical and bulk chemical production for over 100 years, but has only seen significant interest in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries in the past 10 years. This course aims to give an introduction to this exciting and revolutionary field, to familiarise attendees with the current state of the art.

A wide range of highlights from the flow chemistry literature will be discussed, from both academia and industry, with a focus on translating conventional reactions to flow processes. Attendees will become familiar with a number of distinct types of flow reactors, allowing the correct reactor to be chosen to suit the required chemistry. Emphasis will also be placed on the inline and online monitoring of flow reactions, along with the hazards and pitfalls associated with scaling up flow reactions.

There will be a Face to Face version of this course ran in November 2021, please click here for more details – this also includes the Flow Chemistry Masterclass at the University of Graz

A wide variety of examples were given; they helped me understand the concepts and will be a great reference to have for future work. My questions were all answered very satisfactorily.
