Process chemists are responsible for identifying a chemical process that is safe, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly. How do they do it on a day-to-day basis?
Join ACS Institute Educator Joe Martino, an Adjunct Professor of Chemistry at Immaculata University, as he walks you through a typical process chemistry challenge and introduces you to concepts including the SELECT paradigm, a comparison of batch versus continuous flow chemistry, retrosynthetic analysis, and an introduction to Design of Experiments (DoE). Register now if you are interested in pursuing process chemistry as a career path, if you are entering into a process chemistry role or if you simply want to find out more about how this discipline combines a blend of theoretical and practical chemistry knowledge.
This ACS Webinar is moderated by Assistant Director Bryan Tweedy of the American Chemical Society and is co-produced with the ACS Office of Career and Professional Education.
What You Will Learn
- A general approach to a typical process chemistry challenge and an appreciation of how process chemistry is impacted by business, economic and government decision making
- How to identify a batch chemistry operation vs. a continuous flow operation and how retrosynthetic analysis is applied to process chemistry
- An introduction to Design of Experiments (DoE) as a statistical method used to optimize chemical processes
- Process Chemistry: What Is It and How It's Done - ACS Institute In-person Course that gives the participant an overview of the field of process chemistry. Designed for professional chemists at all levels, this course will familiarize the participant with what a process chemist is and how they do it.
