It is no secret that within this highly competitive environment, among pharmaceutical companies that are constantly trying to reduce the time-to-market of New Chemical Entities (NCE’s), the speed of Process Development activities is one of the key factors of success.

Automation has fuelled dramatic advances in fields such as proteomics and genomics (e.g., in preparation of proteins and nucleic acids), enabling non-experts to prepare, test and analyse complex biological molecules.
The rise of automation in the chemistry lab
Since the beginning of the pandemic, automated chemistry has moved up the priority list for many companies, says Paul Whittles, sales director at Deepmatter, a Glasgow, UK, based company developing tools for automated chemistry.
The homologation of boronic esters using lithiated Hoppe-type diisopropylcarbamates and Beak-type 2,4,6-triisopropylbenzoate (TIB) esters represents an efficient process for the formation of carbon-carbon bonds in a highly stereoselective manner.
The NRC’s newly established Advanced Materials Research Facility in Mississauga is a new hub for collaboration in advanced materials R&D with key collaborators from other government departments, academia and the private sector. The co-located NRC & NRCan teams of research specialists in chemistry, materials science, engineering, AI, and robotics will adopt a new way of conducting research to address challenges in advanced materials development and commercialization.
IBM RoboRXN, a cloud-based AI-automated lab, designed to enable a new era of fast-track molecular discovery, now supports proprietary datasets and green chemistry combined with Chemspeed's automated synthesis solutions.

for their important scientific breakthrough in the digitalization of synthetic organic chemistry that helps to improve digital workflows with state-of-the-art machine learning technologies.
Environmental assessments in green chemistry often rely on simpliﬁed metrics that enable comparisons between alternative routes but fail to shed light on whether they are truly sustainable in absolute terms, viz. relative to the Earth’s ecological capacity.
A new gravimetric solid picking & dispensing platform allows you to overcome the burden of repetitive and time-consuming solid reformatting tasks in your laboratory!
