Prof. Tom Leyssens


The main focus of our Research group lies in the field of Crystal Engineering and Crystallization process development.

We look into  the engineering of novel multi-component crystalline systems. Based on the properties of these systems, new solution based crystallization applications are being developed.
The group focuses on pharmaceutically active compounds or compounds of interest to food industry. Some of the current projects focus on chiral resolution, optimization of crystallization, control of hygroscopicity, alternative formulations, co-crystallization as a purification tool, ...
