Chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical companies are currently investing in the development of continuous chemical processes to reduce costs and accelerate the delivery of new molecules to the market. In fact, continuous chemistry has enabled the use of synthetic steps that are currently unattainable with batch processes because they are too exothermic or have mixing limitations. Novel developments in continuous flow reactor technologies have provided robust solutions which can deliver distinct advantages over a more traditional batch process. When coupled with process analytical technology (PAT), flow chemistry allows for rapid analysis, optimization, and scale-up of a chemical reaction. This online seminar invites two industry experts with backgrounds in the academic, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries to present on how flow chemistry integrated with in situ reaction analysis PAT accelerates development of robust chemical processes.
METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce a free online continuous flow chemistry seminar. Both presentations will be followed by a live question and answer session.
- Accelerated Process Development Using an Advanced Flow Reactor
Jerry Salan, Nalas Engineering
- Development of Continuous Flow Chemistry Using Online PAT Analyses
Eric Fang, Snapdragon
- Jerry Salan started his career working as a contractor and then civil servant for the US Navy. His primary responsibilities included managing the production of torpedo fuel and developing processes to novel energetic materials. He successfully scaled up dozens of materials to pilot scale with the help of his fellow scientists and operators. He was fortunate to develop several continuous processing that produced hundreds of kilograms of explosives. In 2007, Jerry worked at Pfizer Inc. in Groton, Connecticut where his focus remained on developing continuous process in the pharma arena. In 2010, Jerry started Nalas with the goal to support small and large pharma business and continue developing processes for the military. He has a 20,000 square foot facility stocked with equipment to support your needs.
- After completing his B.Sc. at Fudan University in Shanghai China, Eric Fang moved to Canada to pursue his M.Sc. degree in inorganic chemistry at the University of waterloo and Ph.D. in organic chemistry at the University of Toronto with Professor Mark Lautens. After furthering his academic training as an NSERC Postdoc Fellow at Harvard University with Professor Eric Jacobsen, Eric joined Amgen as a process chemist in Cambridge, MA, where he developed processes for multiple clinic candidates. Eric led Amgen’s internal effort for small molecule continuous manufacturing technology. After nearly 7 years at Amgen, Eric joined Snapdragon Chemistry in late 2015, and currently holds a position as Director of Chemistry.
