Similar analogs are observed with inorganic crystallization. Zeolite synthesis has conventionally progressed through classical batch processing with high pressure, unstirred autoclaves and is notoriously difficult to predict structures/formulations a prior. Furthermore, many fundamental questions remain about the non-classical crystallization mechanism/pathways.
In this presentation, techniques for using continuous flow chemistry to systematically control the transport and transients in the crystallization process will be explored. An automated reactor system used to access crystallization mechanisms will be discussed and applied to zeolite synthesis.
