Abstract

Summary: Crystallization Elution Fractionation has been optimized to improve resolution power and reduce co-crystallization. Most important step to be optimized is the first separation cycle of Dynamic Crystallization which can be investigated with the help of Crystallization Analysis Fractionation experiments. A new approach to reduce co-crystallization and improve resolution is presented by applying successive cooling and heating cycles in a long column. The new process known as Multiple Crystallization Elution Fractionation adds extended separation at each cooling and heating cycles.
