Crystallization fundamentals and applications

Crystallization growth and nucleation kinetics, mixing behavior and crystallizer design

Distillative freezing

Developing an innovative energy-saving separation technique, called distillative freezing (DF), to separate mixtures of volatile compounds. The major features of this new separation technique are: (1) production of superpure chemicals exceeding 99.9%, (2) reduction of energy consumption, (3) reduction of capital costs of the equipment, (4) accomplishment of pollution prevention.

Modeling of polymerization and biomedical reactions

Application of statistical methods in modeling the immune-complex formation process, application of statistical methods in modeling of the size distribution of the polymerization process
