Engineering chemistry for the future of chemical synthesis

01 Nov 2017

Synthesis is changing in response to our modern resource conscious world. The principles of green chemistry are evolving as the interfaces and boundaries in science are less obvious and providing a new stimuli for future discovery. The invention and application of new chemical reactivity continues to be a primary driver since this opens up so many strategic opportunities for synthesis. However, the manual intensive efforts behind such activity inevitably lead to the need for more machine based approaches. Indeed, the engineering of chemistry delineated in this Symposium in Print seeks to collate some of the recent progress and innovation in the area with contributions from its visionary practitioners.
