7 Key Crystallization Mechanisms


This practical guide describes seven hidden mechanisms that can influence your crystallization process and outlines strategies to control them.

7 Key Crystallization Mechanisms

  • Nucleation
  • Growth
  • Oiling Out
  • Agglomeration
  • Breakage
  • Seeding
  • Polymorph Transformation

Often, these mechanisms occur simultaneously, making effective crystallization design a challenge. In the absence of mechanistic understanding, scientists rely on trial-and-error to adjust process parameters and optimize yield, purity and crystal size. By understanding which mechanisms occur during crystallization, scientists can deploy strategies to deliver a crystal product with the desired properties.
