Research work

Dr. Qu investigates in the implementation PAT(Process Analytical Technology) systems in production processes of Chinese herbal medicine, and is performed in close collaboration with pharmaceutical industry. The manufacturing processes currently considered are: extraction, alcohol precipitation, preparative chromatography, liquid-liquid extraction. The research areas include:  The development implementation of process analyzers (e.g., NIR, UV) in the process stream allowing real-time collection of critical process and (intermediate) product information;  The application of design of experiments(DoE) and multivariate data analysis(MVDA) to increase process understanding and process knowledge;  Multivariate statistical process control and visualization; Process monitoring, plant wide information technology systems, process control, modeling, and optimization methodologies.
