Chemistry is both a science and an industry. The latter uses processes that are often very ingenious, with high yields and selectivity, and which aim at minimising waste and to eliminate pollution. It has undergone many changes in the last decades making it one of the safest industries.
We will give an overview: creation and development of major industrial groups (heavy chemistry, petrochemistry, fine chemistry, pharmacy) while emphasising the innovation and changes in progress.
Following this introduction, several sessions will be dedicated to chemistry engineering techniques and to the industrialisation of processes. The preparation of silicones will be the unifying thread for all the sessions; the industrial unit will be visited with the students at the end of the course.
This teaching is aimed at all students interested in chemistry and who wish to learn about the implementation of this science on a large scale.
