Description

Viedma ripening involves the transformation of a racemic mixture of chiral crystals into one chiral form. Attempts were made to scale-up this process but failed. In this project the reason for the failed scale-up attempts will be investigated. Scale-up and continuous Viedma ripening will be attempted in a different manner using different setups, compounds and different crystal size distributions.

Layman's description

Left- and right handed compounds are difficult to obtain in pure form. Viedma ripening is an easy small-scale approach to transform a mixture into one form. In this project, Viedma ripening will be scaled-up and will be made continuous.
