CORE Network Lecture by Professor Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern, Otto von Guericke University and Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Magdeburg, Germany
In the pharmaceutical, fine chemical, food and agrochemical industries, due to the homochirality of life, there is a large interest in producing pure enantiomers. This is a challenging task since highly enantioselective synthesis methods are difficult to develop. Conventional chemical synthesis is non-selective and leads to 50:50 (racemic) mixtures, creating a need in efficient enantioselective separation processes. Chromatography and crystallization are currently the most powerful methods. Recently it could be demonstrated, that an optimized joint application of these two methods can provide efficient overall processes..... more

CORE Network Lecture by Professor Marco Mazzotti, ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich), Switzerland
The importance of crystallization in the pharmaceutical, food and fine chemical industries stems from its ability to yield highly pure solid products. Beside the final chemical purity, however, the solid state form, the size and the shape of the resulting particles are of paramount importance for the product quality, because they determine characteristics such as filterability, tabletability, flowability and even bioavailability. Practitioners in these industries are well aware of the fact that crystals can take on a variety of shapes, even for the same chemical substance. Any form of control over particle size and especially shape should allow for the design of improved processes..... more
