Incorporating all recent developments and applications of crystallization technology, this volume offers a clear account of the field's underlying principles, reviews of past and current research, and provides guidelines for equipment and process design. The book takes a balanced functional approach in its critical survey of research literature, and includes several problems based on real practical situations that illustrate theoretical development. Several new concepts and techniques used in process simulation and identification analysis are featured.

`This book is readable and informative. It contains many worked examples to illustrate concepts as they are introduced. The book also includes extensive reference lists at the end of each chapter, which provides a structured route into the specialised crystallisation literature...this feature alone could justify [the book's] purchase....The book is well structured and reflects the author's scholarly approach to his subject....I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone with an interest in industrial crystallisation.'
