This Online short course on “Towards more sustainable synthesis” will look at techniques, strategies and tools to minimise the environmental impact of manufacturing pharma/agrochemical and fine chemical intermediates and products.

Monday October 9th | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST – Session 1
Tuesday October 10th | 2.00pm – 5.00pm BST – Session 2

Looking forward, stakeholders in the pharmaceutical/agrochemical industries are expecting new and effective products, alongside reliable supplies of existing products , produced with the principals of sustainability embedded in the design of the manufacturing routes employed. However, in order to deliver the best environmental performance across a diverse range of complex molecules, scientists working in the chemical industries need access to an expanding range of new green technologies and strategies to achieve these goals.

Apart from developing novel reactions, there is a clear stakeholder desire to drive sustainability through metrics, training and education, life cycle impact thinking improved solvent selection, and a move towards greater use of greener technology solutions.
