Seminar

Live Webinar: PAT and Green Chemistry

Harnessing the Power of In-situ PAT for Greener Chemical Processes

Program oversigt

  • Techniques for optimizing chemical processes to reduce waste and improve efficiency
  • Case studies on successful implementation of green chemistry practices in various industries
  • Best practices for designing sustainable chemical processes using process analytical technology (PAT)
  • Q&A with industry experts and practitioners in sustainable chemistry

The strategic drive towards green and sustainable chemistry achieves a dual goal — greater efficiency and reduced waste. Companies across the pharmaceutical, agriculture, chemical, and energy sectors are systematically adopting metrics and strategic initiatives to ensure their products and processes are efficient, effective, and safe in ways that are beneficial to both their business and the environment.

As a result, scientists are increasingly leveraging tools to advance these goals. Process analytical technology (PAT), such as in-situ FTIR and inline particle imaging, provides deep insight into chemical reaction kinetics and mechanisms as well as particle formation and morphology via real-time analysis. Fully automated synthesis workstations provide precise control of reaction variables, which is key to mounting effective optimization studies. Modeling and simulation tools are increasingly being used to screen solvents, determine optimal conditions, and test new ideas using artificial intelligence and statistics.

During this seminar, you will hear from industry experts about their application of advanced tools like these to optimize chemical processes with sustainability goals in mind. Learn about the latest trends and innovations in sustainable chemistry through case studies and live Q&A with the presenters, where you can ask and submit questions directly.

Vanessa Kairouz

Center for Continuous Flow Synthesis, Facility Manager - Université de Montréal

Vanessa Kairouz obtained both her B.Sc. (2011) and M.Sc. (2015; Research Director: Andreea Schmitzer) in chemistry from Université de Montréal. She is the Director of the Center for Continuous Flow Synthesis as well as coordinator of the FRQNT strategic cluster the Center for Green Chemistry and Catalysis located at Université de Montréal. Her versatile educational background in supramolecular chemistry, catalysis, green chemistry, biochemistry, and continuous flow sciences in addition to her extensive experience in training students had led Vanessa to participate in various projects in collaboration with both academics and industrials. Recently, in collaboration with Pr. André Charette they have been awarded over $3M from the Québec Government to provide solutions to overcome drug shortages via on demand synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) using continuous flow chemistry.
