Author: John Garside, Alfons Mersmann & Jaroslav Nyvlt on behalf of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering Working Party on Crystallisation
Publication year: 2002
Extent: Hardback, 202 pages
Winner of IChemE 2002 Brennan Medal for Best Book.
The second edition extends the scope of the first edition, published in 1990, which was concerned solely with the measurement of crystal growth rates. Again produced under the auspices of the Working Party on Crystallisation (WPC) of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), this edition includes the measurement of nucleation rates.
The book recommends: proven methods, equipment and procedures for growth rate measurements, complete information on parameters relevant to the measured data under discussion, symbols and units for presentation and publication. As many chapters were worked on by researchers who have recently applied the methods in laboratories, it also includes detailed descriptions of equipment and apparatus.
