Crystallization, one of the oldest unit operations, is used at some stage in nearly all process industries as a method of production, purification or recovery of solid materials.Today, increasing numbers of applications are being recognised and further developments are appearing in such diverse fields as metallic, ceramic and polymeric materials, fine and speciality chemicals and pharmaceuticals, biomedical and biotechnological products.
Since the first publication of this definitive work thirty years ago, this third edition has been fully rewritten. Incorporating all the recent developments and applications of crystallization technology, it gives clear accounts of the underlying principles, a review of the past and current research themes and guidelines for equipment and process design. A special feature of the book is the large number of appendices that provide relevant physical property data. In addition the carefully selected extensive list of references will be of use to research workers, students and industrial practitioners alike.
The book is written with the precision and clarity of style that is John Mullin's hallmark and will prove to be invaluable to all chemical engineers and industrial chemists in the process industries as well as crystallization workers and students in industry and academia
