Organic Process Research & Development Conference

17 – 19 October 2016

Andel Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic

The 36th Organic Process Research & Development Conference will consist of presentations from international chemists covering all aspects of Process Development.

The speakers will discuss the latest issues in synthetic route design, development and optimisation, reactor design, work up and purification, crystallisation, catalysis, and quality and regulatory issues.

The presentations will be from either speakers within the chemical industry or academics with a strong link to industrial process development, so the material presented will be of particular relevance to all chemists and biochemists in industry, as well as students considering a career in industry.
