Importance of Crystal Size and Shape Distribution

This is the fourth blog post in a series dedicated to crystallization.  In case you missed the previous blog posts in the series, they are available here: Introduction to Crystallization and Precipitation, Common Ways to Reduce Solubility and Drive Crystallization, Supersaturation: Driving Force for Crystal Nucleation & Growth.

The set of PVM images below neatly illustrates the complex size, shape and structure of crystals. From large round “boulders” to beautifully delicate “dendrites”, crystal product is often varied, posing challenges to effective separation and downstream manipulation. Continue reading

Supersaturation: Driving Force For Crystal Nucleation & Growth

This is the third blog post in a series dedicated to crystallization.  In case you missed the first and second in the series, they are available here: Introduction to Crystallization and Precipitation and Common Ways to Reduce Solubility and Drive Crystallization.

Supersaturation is the driving force for all solution crystallization processes. Crystallization scientists gain control over crystallization process and product quality by carefully controlling the prevailing level of supersaturation during the process. Continue reading
