Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences

Personal statement

Joop ter Horst leads an application driven fundamental research group that will facilitate the paradigm shift to continuous manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry. The group will identify routes to exploit the fundamental principles relating molecule, crystal structure and crystallization process phenomena to the crystal product quality to come to hybrid separation technologies to be incorporated in the continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing chain. He adopts a view from the molecular level and up for gaining fundamental understanding to use in control and prediction of new industrial crystallization processes. He cooperates with many university groups inside and outside the UK and his research benefits many industrial partners.

Scale-Up and Continuos Viedma Ripening
Steendam, Rienk (Co-investigator) ter Keurst, Marc (Research Co-investigator) Ter Horst, Joop (Principal Investigator)
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.
