Featured Green Chemistry Webinar:

Beyond Organic Solvents: Synthesis of a 5-HT4 Receptor Agonist in Water

Webinar Date: Thu, Sep 17, 2020 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM EDT

Organic solvents are integral to the way we do chemistry today, but they are also hazardous, and many are derived from non-renewable petroleum. Adapting reactions, workups, and isolations to aqueous conditions is a promising strategy for reducing our reliance on organic solvents. Join 2020 Peter J. Dunn Award winner Dan Bailey of Takeda Pharmaceuticals during this free interactive broadcast as he discusses the a process to manufacture an investigational drug substance almost entirely in water, including multiple controlled isolations from aqueous media. This ACS Webinar is moderated by John Tucker of Neurocrine Biosciences and co-produced with the ACS Green Chemistry Institute. Register for this free webinar
