Understanding the mechanisms of crystallization processes on the molecular level is an essential step in the control of the formation of crystals. These crystals may be a desirable solid product or an undesirable precipitate. Crystallization Processes
* covers the theory, research, applications and control of crystallization processes from a homogeneous liquid to a solid phase.
* considers the behaviour of ions and molecules in homogeneous supersaturated solutions and also in liquid metals and ionic melts.
* discusses recent work on ionic solvation desolvation phenomena, association of ions and molecules in solution and precipitation and dissolution of crystals.
* includes the mechanism of crystallization of calcium carbonate and other simple inorganic electrolytes, amino acids, lipids and proteins.
Crystallization Processes is a valuable source of information for all who are interested in the behaviour of solutions especially the theoretical and practical aspects of crystallization phenomena. These include physical, inorganic and organic chemists, materials scientists and chemical engineers who wish to optimize industrial processes. The Wiley Series in Solution Chemistry fills the increasing need to present authoritative, comprehensive and fully up-to-date accounts of the many aspects of solution chemistry. Internationally recognized experts from research or teaching institutions in various countries are invited to contribute to the series.
