The FCS has been monitoring the developments regarding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and the impact on global travel to the Boston Congress. We have made the decision to postpone the meeting.  New dates will be advised shortly.


Flow Chemistry Congress 2021 | April 2021 (Dates to be Confirmed)
The Wyndham Boston Beacon Hill Hotel, Boston, MA

Conference Registration, Coffee and Danish Breakfast

Welcome Address: Ferenc Darvas, Chairmam, Flow Chemistry Society

Tim Noel, Associate Professor, Eindhoven University of Technology
Innovation in Synthetic Methodology Development Through Flow Chemistry
In this presentation, we will give a selection of our synthetic methodology development, exemplified by photoredox catalysis, C–H activation chemistry and electrochemistry and how these synthetic methods were impacted by continuous-flow microreactor technology.

Shawn Collins, Professor, University of Montreal
Photochemical Macrocyclization in Flow
Efforts to render photochemical macrocyclization a pratical and useful technique for the synthesis of large ring compounds will be discussed. Through the combination of new chemistry and continuous flow techniques, the goal of continuous synthesis of macrocycles on gram scale can be achieved.

Using Continuous Flow Synthesis to Solve Problems in Total Synthesis and in Methodology Development
This talk will illustrate by several examples, how useful continuous flow synthesis is for solving daily problems that are encountered in a synthetic organic chemistry laboratory.

Emily Corcoran, Researcher, Merck
Developing a Strategy for Scaling Photoredox Chemistry in Flow
This presentation highlights efforts within the flow chemistry group at MRL to define an approach to scale up photoredox reactions using continuous flow. The elucidation of an empirical scaling factor by studying the performance of a photoredox cross-coupling reaction will be discussed.

Klavs Jensen, Professor, MIT
Integrating of Machine Learning, Automation, and Flow Chemistry
Flow chemistry in a robot configured system and droplet-screening systems exemplify advances in machine learning, automation and experimental techniques for optimization of flow chemistry processes. 

Adrian Amador, Scientist, Snapdragon Chemistry

Efficient Optimization and Predictable Scaling of Photochemical Reactions Using Modern Technologies
Over the last decade there has been a rapid growth in new photochemical transformations using both direct substrate irradiation and photocatalysis. Many of these transformations have added enabling bond disconnections that were otherwise not possible using thermal reaction pathways. Due to limitations of light penetration into batch reaction vessels, flow chemistry has proven vital in the scaling of these types of reactions. Developing a structured and efficient approach to the optimization of these reactions on lab scale and being able to predict the scaling of the chemistry to larger scale photoreactors will allow a critical path for process development. This presentation will highlight the efforts at Snapdragon Chemistry, Inc. to develop an efficient approach in developing scalable photochemical processes. Our approach leverages custom reactor design, modern automated workflows, as well as mechanistic and statistical modeling to gain key process insights required during lab scale development. Several case studies will be presented which show the use of these technologies for the rapid optimization and predictive scaling of the process.
