Handbook of Industrial Crystallization, 2nd Ed


Allen S. Myerson is the Joseph and Violet Jacobs Professor and Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Polytechnic University. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. Dr. Myerson has published approximately 60 papers in technical journals and has edited one book. He is a consultant, in the area of crystallization, to a number of companies in the United States and Japan


Crystallization is an important separation and purification process used in industries ranging from bulk commodity chemicals to specialty chemicals and pharmaceuticals. In recent years, a number of environmental applications have also come to rely on crystallization in waste treatment and recycling processes.
The authors provide an introduction to the field of newcomers and a reference to those involved in the various aspects of industrial crystallization. It is a complete volume covering all aspects of industrial crystallization, including material related to both fundamentals and applications. This new edition presents detailed material on crystallization of biomolecules, precipitation, impurity-crystal interactions, solubility, and design.

Key Features

  • Provides an ideal introduction for industrial crystallization newcomers
  • Serves as a worthwhile reference to anyone involved in the field
  • Covers all aspects of industrial crystallization in a single, complete volume

New to edition:

  • Incorporates and builds upon increased interest in crystal-lization and incorporates new material in a number of areas.
  • Includes a new chapter on crystallization of proteins (Chapter 12), a revised chapter on crystalhzation of pharmaceuticals (Chapter 11), and a new chapter in an area gaining great importance: crystallization in the food industry (Chapter 13).
  • Other topics that have become important in crystallization research and technology include molecular modeling applications, which are discussed in chapters 2 and 3, and computational fluid dynamics, which is discussed in Chapter 8 and precipitation which is discussed in a totally revised Chapter 6.
