Advanced Chemistry Development Inc.
Discover New IUPAC Organic Nomenclature Rules with ACD/Name
Where: Moscone Center
Room: Moscone Center, Halls B-C, Exhibitor Workshop Room 1
When: Monday, August 11, 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
>> Click here to register for this workshop
Chemistry is a rapidly developing discipline and chemical nomenclature rules cannot stand unchanged with the growing complexity of chemicals. In December 2013 the new Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry IUPAC Recommendations and Preferred Names was published. The most important change is the concept of "Preferred IUPAC Name" (PIN). The new release of ACD/Labs nomenclature software now follows these new algorithms to generate IUPAC PINs, allowing you to generate names according to the old naming conventions at the same time. You can simply compare the two names to see if these changes affect your substances or not. The workshop will guide you through a summary of the changes in IUPAC organic nomenclature accompanied with clear examples of differences in naming generated with ACD/Name. After this workshop you will have a clear understanding what has changed in organic nomenclature, what IUPAC PINs are, and be able to pass this knowledge to your company or classrooms.

An increased variety of analytical equipment has migrated into the synthetic organic chemist’s lab, providing faster answers, streamlined workflow and time-compressed novel chemical entity discovery. Mass spectrometry is an important tool providing information. This workshop will describe how a versatile compact mass spectrometer (CMS) can be simply integrated into many different techniques: • Reaction monitoring by ASAP/CMS • Direct injection (FIA/CMS) • LC/CMS or (U)HPLC/CMS • Mass directed purification by normal phase flash, prep-LC or SFC • TLC/CMS Several examples of real world applications using these techniques in Prof. Corinna Schindler’s University of Michigan synthetic organic chemistry laboratory will be described. Other applications for mass spectrometry in the fast-growing marijuana industry will also be described.

Flow Chemistry Educational Seminar
Where: Moscone Center
Room: Moscone Center, Room 206
When: Tuesday, August 12, 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
>> Click here to register for this workshop
Flow chemistry is one of the hottest topics in organic chemistry today. The number of scientific articles published on this topic is rapidly increasing every year and 20 out of the top 20 Pharmaceutical companies are continuing to invest significantly in flow technology. Why is there so much excitement? Flow reactors can enable you to do things in compound synthesis that weren’t possible before. • Use lower or higher temperatures and pressures to access new chemistries and compounds. • Reduce your reaction times from hours to minutes. • Increase selectivity and yields while reducing purification needs and waste at the same time. • Screen many different sets of conditions in one reaction, all with minimal amounts of potentially expensive or quantity limited materials. • Scale up from milligrams to kilos with minimal optimization. You are cordially invited to an educational chemistry lecture on this emerging field. The goal of the seminar is to show you how flow chemistry can solve many chemistry problems. We will start with a general overview on the fundamentals of flow chemistry, so chemists who are not experts in this field can understand the advantages. This will be followed by presentations from our own experts as well as our users to give you examples on what this technology can enable you to do.

Presenter: Michael D. Jones Synthetic chemists work in a wide range of industries generating compounds for both final products as well as key intermediates. A thorough understanding of the optimal synthetic route allows chemists to make knowledgeable decisions related to increasing purity and yield. In this presentation, we will describe the use of Ultra Performance Convergence Chromatography (UPC2) for monitoring several synthetic processes as performed in a medicinal or synthetic chemistry laboratory. The benefits of this new technology are shown as complimentary additive capabilities which expand the current analytical technologies used in a synthetic laboratory environment. Specific examples will illustrate the benefits of implementing CC in terms of orthogonality to reversed phase LC, simplifying workflows, analyzing structurally similar compounds and proving the technique as an added value technology that will aid better decisions to driving compounds to market.
