Crystallization

About us

Crystallization is an important operation of separation in chemical processes. Also, crystallization is a building-up operation of nanoparticles. Recently, specialists of crystallization decline in number, and it is urgent need how to foster young researchers. In recent years, crystallization has been moving ahead from inorganic materials to organic materials.

Current level of technology, trend and activities in future

  1. Crystallization of fine particles:
    The needs of manufacture fine particles are increasing in many fields such as batteries, catalysts, pharmaceuticals, electronics, cosmetics, etc., and the demand for the crystallization technology is expected to increase again.
    Crystallization technical group will continue to focus on continuously delivering advanced technical information on crystallization technique and equipment.
  2. Protein crystallization:
    Conventionally, structural analysis of proteins in the pharmaceutical and food fields and commercial scale production as functional foods have been important themes, and crystallization technology has been used as the key technology.
    As pharmaceutical products and functional foods with even higher functionality are demanded. The technology of protein crystallization is expected to be continuously addressed as a research and development subject of great interest.
    We plan and organize lectures and technical symposiums focusing on protein crystallization.
