MPI Kolloquiumsreihe: Life Cycle of Artemisinin: from extraction to derivatisation and drug activity

  • Datum: 07.04.2016
  • Uhrzeit: 14:00 - 16:00
  • Vortragender: Prof. Alexei Lapkin, Professor of Sustainable Reaction Engineering at the University of Cambridge, Großbritannien
  • Ort: Max-Planck-Institut Magdeburg
  • Raum: Großer Seminarraum "Prigogine"
  • Gastgeber: Max-Planck-Institut Magdeburg
Dieser Vortrag ist Teil der Kolloquiumsreihe am Max-Planck-Institut Magdeburg. Alle Interessierten sind herzlich eingeladen.

The talk will discuss issues around production of sufficient quantity and quality of artemisinin drug precursor based on conventional farming-extraction route, but focusing on environmentally-friendly solvents and processes. Conversion of artemisinin drug precursor into APIs using intensified continuous process will be briefly discussed as a potential approach to reducing the cost of the artemisinin-based drugs. The final approach to reducing the cost of drugs is modulating activity of API with other natural substances which possess synergistic interaction with artemisinins, increasing their potency.
