Application Note: The use of statistical experimental design in process optimization
This application note describes a case study completed by HEL to demonstrate how a straightforward experimental design approach and a miniature computer controlled multiple reactor system can be used to reduce the manufacturing costs of a commercial chemical process. The process investigated was the pilot plant scale manufacture of 1,3,5-triphenylbenzene.
Call for Papers: 12th HEL Conference
Catalytic reactions, hydrogenation in particular, have seen a remarkable surge in interest over the last 10 years, most strikingly in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries. More recently, flow chemistry has begun to attract a similar level of interest for a wide range of chemistries, but especially involving heterogeneous catalysis. Join the 12th HEL Conference on September 27th 2011, Cambridge, UK, to speak and hear about recent developments in these areas.
