Abstract

l-glutamic acid can be crystallized as metastable α-form and stable β-form crystal. The α-form is desired because of its prismatic shape. Production of α-form of l-glutamic acid by cooling crystallization is not well-defined and α-form solid is commercially not available. In this study, an optimal cooling strategy to selectively produce large and narrowly distributed α-crystals is found by modeling and optimizing the crystallization and polymorphic transformation of l-glutamic acid. The optimal temperature profile is found to be cooling-heating-cooling concept where short nucleation period is followed by growth period in metastable zone. The obtained α-form of L-glutamic acid by optimal strategy had improved mean size, distribution, and purity compared to constant cooling.
