Research BackgroundOur main concern is formation kinetics of "solids", especially in chemical reaction and/or drying of a suspension.
As you know, both reaction and drying are commonly used processes in industrial producion.
In general, large production rate is preferable to mass production, however, increase in process rate,
such as reaction or drying rate, often causes severe defects in products.
Therefore, strategy to realize a larger process rate without losing quality of products is practically important.
This inspires us to study formation kinetics of "solids" in these processes, which are far from equilibrium.
Understanding on formation kinetics gives us clues.
