Kinetic Modelling: What’s in it for me and how to get started

Date: 16 November - 18 November 2021

Location: Online Platform

Tutors: Dr Charles M Gordon, Dr Will Watson

This is a NEW Online Short Course – Reaction kinetic models can provide critical process understanding, and speed the development of robust and optimized Active Ingredient processes for scale-up.   This short course provides an introduction to key aspects of physical organic chemistry and how they can be applied in a kinetic modelling approach.  The course features case studies from the pharmaceutical industry and its chemical supply chain, hands-on exercises and includes an optional day of further hands-on training with Reaction Lab™ software, the leading kinetic modelling platform for chemists in the pharmaceutical industry.

This course will be set over two days with an optional demonstration session on Reaction Lab™

November 16,  1.30 – 5.00 (UK) |  Session 1

November 17, 1.30 – 5.00 (UK) |  Session 2

FREE Optional Session – Introduction on Reaction Lab™

November 18, 1.30 – 5.00 (UK) |  Session 3

Course Outline

Days 1-2: Kinetic Modelling: What’s in it for me and how to get started

  • Theory of reaction kinetics, including an explanation of rate laws with an introduction to first- and second-order reactions, rate-limiting steps and how the Arrhenius relationship can be applied to model kinetics.
  • Application of kinetic models to homogeneous systems and the effects of pre-equilibria, pKa and competitive reactions.
  • Application of kinetic models to heterogeneous systems and the effects of kLA: dissolution of substrate, hydrogenation and biocatalysis.
  • Application of kinetic models to continuous systems and design of Plug Flow Reactors and Continuous Stirred Tank Reactors.
  • Workflows for experimental design and data collection, including internal standards, the importance of a mass balance, and sampling.

Day 3: Introduction to Reaction Lab™

  • Building a kinetic model from scratch
  • Simulation and fitting of experimental data to determine kinetic parameters
  • Optimization of process conditions
  • Generation of a simulated response surfaces to assess process robustness
  • Reaction Lab™ models of heterogeneous and catalytic systems

Who Should Attend

Process development chemists who want to improve their understanding of physical organic chemistry and reaction kinetics.

Online delegate - Kinetics

Great introduction to kinetic modelling concepts and software. I particularly enjoyed working through the example models.

Online delegate - Kinetics

It was an excellent experience, a very interactive session that provides updated information and application tools for Kinetic modeling. Will and Charles instruct so well that I was so captivating with all sessions.

Online delegate - Kinetics

The introduction to kinetic modeling was extremely helpful. As an R&D Director, I am constantly looking for ways to reduce the product development cycle in my lab. This course presented useful information on various approaches to gathering kinetic data for reactions and then building models from the data. I will definitely be passing this information along to my team!
