New Horizon of Process Chemistry by Scalable Reactions and Technologies (#426)

Kiyoshi Tomioka, Robert M. Williams, Reuben Jih-Ru Hwu, Hironao Sajiki, Takayuki Shioiri, Nobuyoshi Yasuda

Process chemistry underpins the competitiveness of chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Since the stagnation of process chemistry is estimated to cause the industrial depression and excessive loss, chemists focus on process chemistry consistently provide the stimulus by the development of novel and efficient new reactions and technologies. This symposium will draw focus to the methodologies and technologies adaptable to process chemistry because the drug discovery from molecules will be involved in other symposia. This symposium will be concerned with new catalysts, reactions and methods for the synthesis of functional materials including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, functional materials, chemical raw materials and so on oriented in the direction of process chemistry including green and sustainable chemistry as one of the major topics. Furthermore, various isolation methods including crystallization, development of reactors and equipment, direct observational methods of the reaction progress are also important topics. Finally, the process design to scale up will be also considered.
