The development of chemical processes takes place across a range of scales, and it is important to understand the key project attributes from the outset so that a phase-appropriate development can be undertaken. With an overarching aim of Quality Manufacture, our process research and development activities involve a pragmatic approach, understanding what is critical to your project.
The correlation between process parameters and reaction outcome is probed during the development and optimisation phase, allowing for a much deeper understanding around a particular chemical event. Key to this phase of work are strong analytical capabilities and an attention to detail, as an understanding of process impurities becomes critical.
With the aim of generating a proof-of-concept batch, scale up is undertaken in a safe and cost-effective manner, with the ultimate aim of delivering a robust, reproducible and reliable process.
