SCI/RSC Continuous Flow Technology III Mar 14-16 2016
Conference: United Kingdom [in English]

This three day conference on Continuous Flow Technology is organised by both SCI and RSC, combining previously successful 1 and 2 day symposia. This reflects the advances made with continuous flow technology over recent years and the impact it is making right across the chemicals industry spanning discovery applications, process development advances and value for commercial manufacture of fine and speciality chemicals. To reflect the mix of interests and applications across the chemistry community, the symposium is structured as two back to back events with options for attending two consecutive days or all three.
