Reaction Calorimetry & FTIR For Kinetic & Catalysis Reactions

While preparing to present seminars at Chemical and PetroChemical companies in Texas, I conducted a brief search for scientific publications describing the use of real time in situ ATR-FTIR or reaction calorimetry. Continue reading

Impact of Process Parameters on Supersaturation and Crystal Size and Shape

This is the fifth blog post in a series dedicated to crystallization.  In case you missed the previous posts in the series, they are available here:

The diagram below illustrates the relationship between supersaturation and crystal size distribution, via crystal nucleation and growth. In this post, we will look at how supersaturation can be controlled by adjusting process parameters such as antisolvent addition rate. Continue reading

Why is Kinetic Data Valuable?

Arguably, kinetics is one of the least popular subjects in academic or industrial research.  During her recent webinar – Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis: A Powerful Methodology for Streamlining the Study of Complex Organic Reactions, Donna Blackmond reiterated why having kinetic data can be valuable:
