Organofluorine Chemistry: Synthesis, Applications, Sources and Sustainability

On line Training Course

Date: 01 March - 03 March 2022

Location: Online Platform

Tutors: Dr John Studley

NEW ON LINE COURSE FOR 2022

We are delighted to present this two day course On Line and will be divided up over three afternoon sessions, timings are all set in GMT (Greenwich Meantime) and are set later to help with our international clients.

March 1st, 2022 | 2.00 – 5.00pm UK
March 2nd, 2022 | 2.00 – 5.00pm UK
March 3rd, 2022 | 2.00 – 5.00pm UK

Organofluorine compounds are frequently encountered in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and fine chemical industries. Often the selective introduction of a fluorine atom or functional group into a molecule can be challenging, particularly at scale, with chemists often designing synthetic routes in which fluorine is introduced through strategic sourcing of raw materials rather than synthetically.

This on line course aims to provide an overview of fluorination technology and synthetic methods- both traditional and state of the art- highlighting industrial application. Detailed case studies are used to provide context and workshops enable delegates to familiarize themselves with the chemistry described.

Please do view the brochure for more information (please note this is based on the live 2 day course, but the content is the same)
