Formatted abstract
Sucrose crystallisation in aqueous solution, used extensively in sugar production, is prone to slow crystal growth rates with large standard deviations. An increase of the growth rate of sucrose would mean more efficient industrial crystallisation and potentially an increased understanding of how to reduce the deviation. A series of batch crystallisation experiments was performed to investigate the effect of thermally treating sucrose crystals on their crystal growth rates.
