Images of Research: Innovation for the global good

Crystallising solutions for precision pharmaceuticals

Category: Closing the loop

The crystallisation process of sodium bromate produced this attractive fern-like pattern but the real beauty is in the research. At Strathclyde, we are trying to understand the precise process conditions to generate specific compound crystal shapes. This research could impact multiple industries, such as pharmaceuticals, enabling the production of drugs in tailor-made doses, improving their effectiveness and even making them easier to swallow.
