From Research to Innovation

Timothy Noël received in 2004 his MSc degree (Industrial Chemical Engineering) from the KaHo Sint-Lieven in Ghent. He then moved to Ghent University to obtain a PhD at the Laboratory for Organic and Bioorganic Synthesis (2005-2009). Next, he moved to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow with Professor Stephen L. Buchwald. At MIT, he worked at the MIT-Novartis Center for Continuous Manufacturing. He currently holds a position as an associate professor in the Micro Flow Chemistry & Process Technology group at Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interests are flow chemistry, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis and organic synthesis.

Abstract

An Artificial leaf for drug production
In this lecture, we will discuss a novel device integrating the luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) concept with photomicroreactors (LSC-PM), allowing the direct use of solar light in photochemistry without the need for any intermediate energy conversion. This device is capable of capturing direct and diffuse sunlight, converting it into a narrow wavelength and delivering it to the embedded microchannels. Hence, biologically active compounds and pharmaceuticals can be prepared by converting solar energy.
