26th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference

Using Computers to Deliver Green Chemistry: In Silico Techniques for Designing and Developing Chemical Reactions

Symposium Organizers: Jared Piper, Director of Process Chemistry, Chemical Research and Development, Pfizer, Inc., and Jason Stevens, Computer Aided Synthesis Lead, Chemical Research, Bristol-Myers Squibb

Co-Sponsor: ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable

Many tools are being created that augment human decision making and focus on large sets of data to determine trends. These techniques have the potential to minimize the number of experiments to arrive at an ideal synthesis, hypothesis, or process. In addition, models and in silico techniques can probe hypothetical situations that could prove challenging to set-up in a laboratory due to cost or safety considerations. Presentations describing recent advances in computer-assisted chemistry methods will be discussed.
