The first part of the training course will be led by Assoc. Prof. DI Dr. Heidrun Gruber-Woelfler of Graz University of Technology and will be looking at the theory of synthesis in Flow and to an introduction to work-up, crystallisation and filtration processes.
The second part of the training course will be led by Dr Thomas McGlone Technical Operations Manager at CMAC National Facility.
Attendees will have at their disposal 6 different stations with 6 different DEMOS (several flow chemistry reactions, crystallization, formulation) and will gain insights of an end to end continuous process.
2-3 stations will focus on different synthesis reactions.
A model compound will be run through 4 stages – synthesis, work-up, crystallisation and filtration. These will be linked into a continuous, ‘end-to-end process’. This will give delegates the opportunity to observe some downstream operations (following synthesis).
A separate station will demonstrate hot melt extrusion (HME) and how the output of this can be linked with 3-D printing, moving towards applications in personalised medicine.
