About the Authors
  • Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this text provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of industrial crystallization. Newcomers will learn all of the most important topics in industrial crystallization, from key concepts and basic theory to industrial practices. Topics covered include the characterization of a crystalline product and the basic process design for crystallization, as well as batch crystallization, measurement techniques, and details on precipitation, melt crystallization and polymorphism. Each chapter begins with an introduction explaining the importance of the topic, and is supported by homework problems and worked examples. Real world case studies are also provided, as well as new industry-relevant information, making this is an ideal resource for industry practitioners, students, and researchers in the fields of industrial crystallization, separation processes, particle synthesis, and particle technology.

    • Comprehensive, fully up to date, and dedicated to both the theory and practice of industrial crystallization
    • Includes new industry-relevant information
    • Provides real world case studies, problems, and worked examples

    This is a handy, compact text book, which covers all salient topics of industrial crystallization. From the basic characterization of crystalline products via nucleation & crystal growth to advanced items such as the population balance equation, thermodynamics, additives & impurities and polymorphism. While kept light and to the point compared to more massive text books such as `Industrial Crystallisation´ by Prof. Mullins, all topics are well discussed and illustrated by suitable examples and illustrations. With ca. 300pages, it is also very suitable for browsing and quick look-ups. Definitely handy to have.

    The book covers the different aspects of industrial crystallization, in a simple and accessible text, with exercises to apply the concepts studied. Worth it.
