Can You Scale-Up Fluorine Based Compounds Cost and Time Effectively?

Organo-fluorine compounds have had a profound impact on the development of modern pharmaceuticals with recent estimates suggesting that over 30% of all drug pipeline compounds contain a fluorine atom. Whilst fluorine can impart many desirable characteristics to a drug candidate molecule, its introduction can often pose a challenge in the manufacturing process. The panel is intended as a forum to address some of the most common issues when scaling-up fluorine based compounds, as well as giving the audience a chance to pose questions to both suppliers with expertise in organo-fluorine chemistry and pharmaceutical companies with experience of outsourcing organo-fluorine compounds.

The panel will be moderated by Jordi Robinson, Head of Technical Business Development at Manchester Organics & Navin Fluorine. Panelists have been drawn from both providers of organo-fluorine chemistry and major pharmaceutical companies.

ChemOutsourcing is an annual Pharma-focused chemistry event that takes place every September at the Jersey Shore. It attracts medicinal and process chemists from pharmaceutical companies working with CRO's and CMO's striving to bring new human therapeutics to market. www.chemoutsourcing.com
