Talk at Crystallisation Day Symposium

I’m delighted to have given a talk on the Crystallisation Day Symposium at the University of Leeds this week. I have presented my work as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at King’s College London on the continuous synthesis and precipitation of amorphous paracetamol.

During my talk, I’ve explained the advantages of continuous flow reactors for chemical reactions, especially in terms of product uniformity due to excellent mass and heat transfer, and depicted the method I’m using to obtain amorphous paracetamol from 4-aminophenol and acetic anhydride.

Having undertaken a PhD at the University of Leeds for the past 4.5 years, and currently waiting for my viva to be held next month face-to-face there, it felt like a wink of destiny to have my first conference as a post-doctoral researcher at that same University. Being back there felt like home, a feeling printed with nostalgy for my younger self, and I got thoughtful walking through those corridors as I was realising the number of times – thousands of times – I had been through them in my 5.5 years in Leeds. It was nice to see my former fellow colleagues of the School of Chemical and Process Engineering, and it was lovely receiving their encouragements for my coming PhD viva in June.

I’d like to thank the organisers of this event for their professionalism and making sure that we had a pleasant venue at the University of Leeds. I am thankful to the presenters how have given world class talks involving climate change, giant crystals, and many other topics showing that crystallisation is a key phenomenon on Earth. I’m grateful to the EPSRC Redistributed Manufacturing in Healthcare Network (RiHN) for sponsoring my research and to Prof. Makatsoris and Prof. Frampton for their thoughful supervision.
