About The Event
We recognize that we have a role to play in tackling environmental degradation and climate change. We do this through providing products and services that reduce our customers’ environmental impact and by the active management and mitigation of the impact of our own operations.
Our synthetic chemistry group is constantly evaluating and questioning our go-to synthetic methods to ensure we are using the most contemporary techniques available. Our goal is to ensure the new synthetic routes that we are devising will minimize their environmental impact and be fit for the future.
This webinar is the second in a series where we explore some of the latest new synthetic methods which we evaluate when we design novel synthetic routes to candidate drugs. In the sustainable chemistry webinar series we will be covering topics such as flow chemistry and photochemistry as well as discussing reagent and solvent choices.
In this webinar Helen Sneddon, Professor of Sustainable Chemistry at The University of York and Director of the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence will briefly explore the environmental impact of the pharmaceutical industry as a whole, and of discovery chemistry within that industry. She will also look at practical tools around solvent and reagent selection to minimize environmental impact, and touch on technologies that can be used to create improved processes, and metrics that can be used to quantify improvements.
