Crystallization is an important separation operation in the chemical process. Also, crystallization technology is building up operation of nanoparticles. Recently, this field covers not only crystallization of inorganic materials but also organic materials. However, our group has a problem. The problem is that specialists of this filed decline in number of late, and it is an urgent issue how to foster young researchers.
Current level of technology, trend and activities in future
Crystallization technology supports Japanese cutting-edge industry, as the fundamental technology to produce chemical engineering products. Although Japanese crystallization technology is ahead of that of the Western, this technology is not succeeded smoothly, similar to other unit operations. Also, it is of increasing concern that the next development will be hindered. So, we regularly interact with international groups and confirm their level. We continue to hold special seminars to succeed fundamental technology. Moreover, we will hold job seminars to enhance crystallization technology in many companies. We will continue this kind of efforts in the future.
