Chemical Engineering Essentials from Academic Authors - Session Eight - Fundamentals of Crystal Nucleation and Growth: Equilibrium Considerations

AIChE’s Leadership Webinars
Leadership Development Conference
Originally delivered Jul 13, 2011

This webinar is intended to provide a survey of the fundamental concepts and methods for understanding crystallization from solution. Although the approach taken is intended to be general, the particular focus and applications is taken from the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The material is most suitable for engineers, scientists and managers who are newcomers to the field and who want to understand the foundations of the subject. Topics will include nucleation as an activated process, phase diagrams for characterizing solubility of solutes in pure and mixed solvents, metastable zones, polymorphs and polymorph transitions.

Please note that this is the first session of a 2-part series. Each session requires separate registration, and is designed to function both as a standalone presentation and correlated material. Attending the first session is suggested, but not required, for attending the second, and vice versa. The second session is called 'AIChE’s Leadership Webinars: Chemical Engineering Essentials from Academic Authors - Session Nine: Crystal Engineering for Size and Shape.'
