Fundamentals and applications of ultrasound stimulated crystallisation. 2019 entry

Crystallisation is an important synthesis, separation and purification process used by a diverse range of manufacturing industries, but suffers from ineffective crystallisation process. This projects explores the use of ultrasound to overcome these crystallisation problems which currently lacks of fundamental understanding of the mechanisms.

About the Fundamentals and applications of ultrasound stimulated crystallisation. 2019 entry

Crystallisation is an important synthesis, separation and purification process used by a diverse range of manufacturing industries such as pharmaceutical, food and chemical, as well as waste water treatment to recover valuable solutes and clean water. However, many of these industrial crystallisation processes suffer from ineffective crystallisation conditions. Ultrasound has the potential to overcome these problems by accelerating the crystallisation process and producing superior crystals, but its full potential is hindered by a lack of fundamental understanding of the mechanisms involved and systematic studies.
