Scope of Symposium
As an efficient and effective purification process, crystallization plays a vital role in various industries. The operating conditions of a crystallization process determine the properties of the crystal product such as purity, size and shape distributions and polymorphic form. These properties in turn affect the downstream processing and handling, and eventually the functional properties and shelf-life of the final formulated product. As such, the control of solid phase properties through crystallization has been the focus of considerable industrial and academic research. This symposium will cover all aspects of industrial crystallization as well as the impact of crystallization on the subsequent solid handling and processing. In line with the Process Analytical Technology (PAT) initiative, in-situ monitoring and control of crystallization process will be discussed. New emerging materials and processes with impact on existing technology e.g. cocrystals and amorphous forms, novel crystallizer design, etc. will also be examined.
Topics: • Crystallization process design, scale-up and control • In-situ observation of crystallization process • Effects of additives or impurities on crystallization process and product quality • New materials – co-crystals and amorphous forms • Downstream processing (micronization, formulation) • Advances in characterization and stability analysis of crystallization products • Crystallization related to industrial process
