CRYSTALLIZATION: Crystallization is the process of synthesis of solid crystals by the precipitation of a solution. Crystallization is also a separation technique comes in the category of slid –liquid separation, in which solute from the liquid solution transfers in to a pure solid crystalline form. Crystallization is due to the precipitation, obtained from a variation of the solubility conditions of the solute in the solvent, and as compared to precipitation occurs due to chemical reaction.  SUGAR CRYSTALLIZATION: Dissolving sugar in liquid results in a sugar syrup. But it can’t dissolve more enough into a fixed volume of water. Normally the dissolution of the sugar is accelerated by heating the mixture. When the solution comes to boil, water evaporates and the concentration of the sugar increased. The formation of crystal starts only when the sugar solution reaches a particular concentration and this state is called a supersaturated solution. The saturation point is the point at which maximum concentration of sugar is present in water without crystal formation. It depends on the temperature of the solution. At higher temperatures, the more sugar will be held in the solution. At these temperatures, the sugar will remain in solution, even when much of the water will boiled away. But if solution begins to cool, there will…show more content…
It is the initial process that occurs in the formation of a crystal from a solution, a liquid, or a vapor, in which a small number of ions, atoms, or molecules become arranged in a pattern characteristic of a crystalline solid, forming a site upon which additional particles are deposited as the crystal grows. Common examples are the condensation of water vapor into droplets in the atmosphere, the formation of ice crystals when water freezes, and the appearance of gas bubbles in a
