RSC Lecture Theatre
The RSC Symposium 2020
Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry
Industrial Continuous Flow Processes
Past, Present and Future
This two day international symposium organised by the Speciality Chemicals Sector will be held in conjunction with the 2020 Chemspec Europe and Chemsource Exhibitions organised by Mack Brooks Exhibitions Group.
The production of speciality chemicals is still heavily reliant on batch processes and this symposium will highlight the latest advances and developments in the application of continuous processes in the fine chemicals and biotechnical industries.
There will be a programme of internationally acclaimed speakers, mostly from industry, and from companies making pioneering advances in the technology.
Topics to be covered include:
- Continuous flow reactors and equipment on a production scale
- Continuous flow technology for the biotechnical industries
- Catalytic systems for flow
- Continuous biocatalysis
- Continuous extraction and isolation
- Intensification strategies and productivity
- Nanoscale reactions
- Hydrogenation processes
Presentations at the Royal society of Chemistry Symposium 2020 include:
