Mesocrystals and nonclassical crystallization
2008, Cölfen, Helmut, Antonietti, Markus
Through both explanation and discussion, this title presents a complete review into mesocrystals, and accurately describes this relatively new study of established materials. This book also provides an introduction to other areas of crystallisation including self-assembly, classical crystallisation and colloidal crystals.
* Description of crystals as well as their formation processes and ways to modify them.
* Examines new ways towards the design of new materials and aids comprehension of the building principles of biominerals.
* Helps to explain many unusual observations made in the study of crystallisation.
Written by the professionals in this subject 'Mesocrystals: New Self-Assembled Structures' outlines the future potential of this topic within a variety of disciplines including engineering science, physics and chemistry, making it a versatile and valuable text.
