Don't miss "Essential Green Chemistry Tools and Techniques for Pharmaceutical Scientists," on Sunday, March 31, 1:00-4:30 PM ET, in Room W313 of the Orange County Convention Center during the ACS Spring 2019 National Meeting & Exposition. This workshop will equip industry-based R&D chemists and engineers as well as graduate students with practical green chemistry tools, methods, and metrics. Topics from green chemistry basics to the most recent innovative tools and metrics widely used in the pharmaceutical industry will be covered.
The workshop will be tailored toward scientists and engineers working in batch chemical operations in common use within the pharma industry, but the tools can also be applied to other allied chemical industries. You'll learn the fundamentals of green chemistry and engineering; tools that the pharma industry routinely uses to optimize their synthetic chemical processes; how to use these tools to make "greener" decisions in synthetic drug design and process development; and real-world applications from experienced pharma industry process development chemists.
