Episode 7 of the modern Chemistry podcast is the first one recorded since the start of the global COVID 19 pandemic. Jeff Sperry and I talk about how safety analysis is vital earlier in process development, specifically drug discovery, rather than waiting until you have a new process and being told it’s not safe. We also discuss the impact of the pandemic on his work & working practices at the beginning. So, if you’ve had enough virus chat, scroll through the first five minutes after the intro

For episodes 6 (Part 2) of the Modern Chemistry show, I have carried on my insightful journey with Kevin Lam- “The Electric Chemist”.
Kevin’s research interests focus on the applications of electrochemistry, in particular working on the fields of organic electrochemistry, organometallic electrochemistry and medicinal electrochemistry. Part 1 of this podcast (episode 5), can be found below.

For episode 5, which is split into two parts(episode 6 – next month) of the Modern Chemistry show, I interviewed Kevin Lam. Kevin’s research interests focus on the applications of electrochemistry, in particular working on the fields of organic electrochemistry, organometallic electrochemistry and medicinal electrochemistry. The discussion with Kevin covered so much ground that I felt it made sense to split the discussion across two separate episodes.

 

For episode 4 of the Modern Chemistry show, Paul Orange interviewed Shmuel De Leon. Since 1990, Shmuel has been working with batteries, energy cells and other energy storage devices. This podcast covers how battery technology is rapidly evolving and what challenges are being addressed.

Nessa Carson – Chemistry with ROBOTS!

For episode 3 of the Modern Chemistry show, I interviewed Nessa Carson, (@SuperScienceGrl on Twitter). Nessa currently works for Pfizer in the UK, in high throughput Chemistry and has previously worked for AMRI in a similar role. We discuss how robots have helped her in her work, but also how interdisciplinary modern chemistry needs to be.

The Flow State – Making Catalysis More Efficient

For episode 2 of the Modern Chemistry show, I interviewed RUSSELL TAYLOR, Lecturer in Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry & ESPRC Manufacturing Fellow and SAM RAYNES, Ph.D. student. Both at Durham University, UK.

Understanding The Science Of Safety With Jensen Hughes

For episode 1 of the Modern Chemistry show, I interviewed DAMIAN STEFANCZYK, Senior Consultant at Jensen Hughes and JENS CONZEN Associate Director, Industrial and Process Safety, also of Jensen Hughes. You can find out more information about Jensen Hughes at https://www.jensenhughes.com/
