Dissolution of the powder in a liquid is of highly importance for many industries. It affects the performance of the end products. For example, the time needed for the tablet to dissolve inside human body and for the fertilizer particles to dissolve in the field.
This project aims to more understanding of the dissolution process of the solid particles in the liquid. This will be carried out using an imaging technique that able to track the dissolution process online. Then building a model based on the images which describe the dissolution process.
During the course of the project, the student will be trained on different production and analysing techniques that used in powder technology.
The candidate will be invited to the 9th International Granulation Conference in Switzerland. In addition, the student will be encouraged to attend different conferences of powder technology both inside and outside UK.
