Here’s a sneak peek at who’s to come:

Go with the flow? The future of organic chemistry

Monday 27th May 2019

Speaker: Dr Sebastian Cosgrove, University of Manchester.

Seb is an organic chemist who works at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology as a postdoctoral researcher. His interests lie in the use of new technologies for small molecule synthesis, with a particular interest in using engineered enzymes as catalysts and running reactions under continuous flow conditions. Flow is the continuous pumping of chemical reactions through tubular reactors, a technology that holds much promise for more efficient ways to make molecules than the traditional batch methods more commonly applied. This talk will discuss the implications of using flow over the established methods and touch on some of Seb’s research using enzymes in continuous reactors.
