CEP: March 2014

This month's cover story focuses on the basics of solid-liquid equilibrium as the foundation for crystaliization process development and how to use SLE data in designing a feasible process. Other topics include pressure measurement and sizing control valves for lab-scale laminar flow.


Whatever You Do, Don't Look Down

You’ve spent hours writing your paper, preparing the slides for your presentation, and practicing your talk. You’ve endured the humiliation of the airport security inspection, the frustration of the weather-related flight delay, the discomfort of the cramped airplane seats, and the disruption of your circadian rhythm after crossing several time zones.
