Organofluorine Chemistry: Synthesis, Applications, Sources and Sustainability
Online Training Course
Date: 19 July - 21 July 2023
Location: Online Platform
Tutors: Dr John Studley
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.
July 19th, 2023 | 2.00 – 5.30pm UK
July 20th, 2022 | 2.00 – 5.30pm UK
July 21st, 2022 | 2.00 – 5.30pm 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.
