Biotage (Uppsala, Sweden) announced plans to sponsor summer programs for chemists to learn about the latest approaches for the rapid production of novel compounds. The three-day programs will be held July 21-23, 2008, at the University of Richmond (Virginia) and July 29-31, 2008, at the University of Edinburgh (UK). According to the company, the programs will bring together industry and academic leaders for discussion of issues such as solid-supported reagents and scavengers in microwave synthesis, microwave-accelerated metal-catalyzed transformations, and flow synthesis. Workshops will focus on streamlining workflows with microwave and flash purification systems, scavengers, reagents, and reaciton work-up products. The programs will also include poster sessions.
