Green and effective continuous multi-step synthesis of ring-fused heteroaromatics
Liotta, Charles L.; Eckert, Charles A.; France, Stefan A.; Pollet, Pamela
Historically, batch processing has been the major strategy in the synthesis of complex molecules, especially molecules of pharmaceutical interest. In general, this approach has been fraught with high cost, excessive time for scale-up, and waste issues. In order to address these issues, continuous flow technology has been identified as an alternative production vehicle since it has both environmental and economic advantages. Continuous flow technology offers superior mass and heat transfer, and lower production costs when compared with the traditional batch technology. Technological transfer from batch to continuous flow maximizes performance in terms of product yield and selectivity while minimizing solvent and catalyst needs thereby lowering production costs. In addition, continuous flow processes can be “scaled out” in contrast to batch processes that must be “scaled up.” In this research project, we take advantage of continuous flow technology to conduct the multi-step synthesis shown in Scheme 1.

Microlocal Methods in Dynamical Systems
Zworski, Maciej
Microlocal analysis exploits mathematical manifestations
of the classical/quantum (particle/wave) correspondence and has
been a successful tool in spectral theory and partial differential
equations. We can say that these last two fields lie on the
quantum/wave side. Recently, microlocal methods have been applied to the study of
classical dynamical problems, in particular of chaotic (Anosov)
flows. I will illustrate this by proving that the order of vanishing of the
dynamical zeta function at zero for negatively curved surfaces is
given by the absolute value of the Euler characteristic (joint work
with S Dyatlov).
Presented on October 10, 2016 at the QMath13: Mathematical Results in Quantum Theory Conference at the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons, Georgia Tech.; Federico Bonetto, Evans Harrell, and Michael Loss hosted the conference series "Mathematical Results in Quantum Theory" (or QMath). The series was initiated by P. Exner and P. Seba in 1987. The aim is not only to bring together people interested in the "quantum part" of mathematical physics, but also to stimulate a search of new quantum effects and a deeper understanding of quantum physics, as well as the development of methods which can help in situations where the standard quantum mechanical tools are inadequate.; Maciej Zworski is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley.; Runtime: 53:43 minutes
