At this time of social distancing in our laboratories when we need to minimise the number of people in the lab, automation and data-logging can help chemists to continue their chemical research and development under safe, controlled conditions.
Automation of chemical processes in research and development laboratories has been available on different platforms for many years. Having the ability to run recipes and automatically respond to conditions which may arise, offers a level of safety to allow overnight or unattended reactions to be performed safely, and have the data recorded.
This webinar will be a case study of a scale-up group, using automated an addition to control an exothermic reaction, and the use of safety feedback loops to pause and restart the addition based on process temperature.
Key learning objectives
1. How automating reaction systems can benefit chemists
2. The use of automated feedback loops with controlled additions
Who should attend?
1. Process Research and Development Chemists
2. Chemists who have reactions which need to be left unattended
