The synthesis of crystalline materials is at the heart of a wide variety of technological applications, including the manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients, high-value chemicals, and functional materials. Chemical Engineers are therefore interested in developing a detailed understanding of crystallization across a range of length scales, from tiny molecules to industrial crystallizers capable to sustain the production of blockbuster drugs. In this taster lecture, the fundamental ideas at the heart of crystallization processes will be introduced and discussed in the context of process and product design. The role of computational techniques that allow us to model, understand, and predict the outcome of crystallization at different scales will be discussed with examples from the current research literature.
Dr Matteo Salvalaglio, Lecturer in Chemical Engineering
