description: Master Thesis
topic: Purification of magnesium employing fractional crystallization

The production of ultra-high purity magnesium through the state of the art methodology -vacuum distillation-, faces difficulties removing impurity elements with similar vapor pressure. Fractional crystallization stands as a cost and time efficient alternative being researched in this work for its application on magnesium.


job definition:

Improve the removal rate of the most common magnesium impurities through fractional crystallization, while developing a prediction model for their removal based on thermodynamic data. Experience with FactSage is desirable.
