11th international Congress on Catalysis and Fine Chemicals (CAFC-11)

11th international Congress on Catalysis and Fine Chemicals (CAFC-11)

5th – 8th September 2016

Lyon, France


The congress is devoted to the application of any type of catalysts -homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzymatic; whatever are involved metals, organometallic complexes, organic species, or even acids and bases, to the synthesis of fine chemicals, with special emphasis on selectivity issues.

The aim is to bring together researchers from both academia and industry working in this area to share their expertise as a way to open new collaborations helping to solve forthcoming problems in the chemical industry. Today’s research in the field of Applied Catalysis must also involve eco-efficient methodologies that could be addressed by chemical engineering (multicomponent reactions, multiphase or flow reactors, multifunctional reactors…) as well as implementing more sustainable synthetic methods for fine chemistry based on catalytic transformation of bio-based substances.

Connections in flow

Chemistry World has spoken to Reaction Chemistry & Engineering Editorial Board Chair Professor Klavs Jensen about his work in the field of flow chemistry and continuous processing, culminating in the recent construction of an on-demand continuous flow pharmaceutical production platform with colleagues from MIT.

This achievement was made possible because of close collaboration between chemists and chemical engineers. As a journal, Reaction Chemistry & Engineering seeks to foster clear communication and knowledge sharing between the two disciplines that may lead to future endeavours such as this.

‘It makes sense to form a journal that allows the community from both sides to interact. So we want chemical engineers to publish papers that are interesting to the chemists and chemists to publish papers that have some engineering content and so will also be interesting to the engineers’, explains Professor Jensen, discussing his hopes for the journal. ‘We’d like to have something in between, that actually highlights from both sides what is the contribution in terms of understanding and developing new reactions, being able to optimize those, and understanding the kinetics. But also what does it take to run those – and so we bring together the two disciplines.’

Professor Jensen is convinced that a new journal is needed to do this: ‘Existing journals have reviewers that determine what is published, and they’ve developed their own communities. So it’s much harder to take an existing journal and change the course than it is to redefine, to really set a new goal and create a journal that satisfies the needs from both sides.’

Kinetics of Nanocrystal Synthesis in a Microfluidic Reactor

New insight into nanocrystal nucleation and growth has emerged from researchers in Switzerland, giving vital knowledge and tools for large-scale quantum dot production.

Andrew DeMello and his team at ETH Zurich used a two-stage microfluidic reactor to precisely control the nucleation and growth stages of nanocrystal synthesis by automated control of reagent amounts, residence times and temperatures. This tight control combined with measurement of online spectroscopic data gave the scientists the ability to validate kinetic models of the synthesis – essential tools for chemical engineers to design processes for high quality, high volume quantum dot production.

IMRET14

The next event of the IMRET “International Conferences on MicroREaction Technology” conference series will be held in the historic city of Beijing, China in September 12-14, 2016.

IMRET14 will be hosted by Tsinghua University, and co-hosted by Dailian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The IMRET is a scientific conference in the field of micro process engineering and the sciences of microreactors that started in Frankfurt am Main, Germany in 1997. Since then, thirteen IMRET conferences have been organized by various well recognized societies and institutes. By organizing IMRET14, the committee aims to strengthen the multidisciplinary communication in the field of micro-process technology, and to facilitate its integration into everyday practices throughout the world by delivering the latest knowledge and making it available for the entire community.
