7 Jul 2015 - 14:45

Professor Alison Lewis has co-authored a new book, Industrial Crystallization: Fundamentals and Applications, which bridges the gap between theory and practice, and provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of industrial crystallization.

The co-authors are A/Professor Marcelo Seckler from the University of São Paulo, A/Professor Herman Kramer and Professor Gerda van Rosmalen from the Delft University of Technology.

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.

The book was published in July 2015 and can be viewed at Cambridge University Press.
