By establishing a culture of safety throughout all stages of development, chemists and engineers minimize accidents by automatically controlling exothermic events. Parallel to process development, studies are conducted to investigate the stability, composition, and the reaction itself by reaction and adiabatic calorimetry.  This seminar will discuss  how chemists and engineers identified robust reaction conditions and appropriate safety boundaries to develop a reproducible, safe protocol for the implementation of this chemistry on large scale. 

When considering reactive materials, it is important to evaluate the hazards of using reagents in general purpose manufacturing facilities. During the process risk assessment, controls are established to mitigate these hazards and ensure a basis of safety can be established. Reactive compounds can have an impact on the basis of a safe operation and this seminar will address the investigation of the thermal stability under general purpose plant conditions utilizing reaction calorimetry and headspace mass.
