Depending on supersaturation, which is controlled either by temperature or by pH, and in the absence of additives, crystallization by mesoscale assembly of nanoparticles is found over a wide range of conditions, leading to so-called mesocrystals. This supplements the classical molecule-based crystallization mechanism, which is identified at lower supersaturations and at pH values away from the isoelectric point (IEP). The resulting alanine crystals are characterized by SEM, XRD, and single-crystal analysis. Time-resolved conductivity measurements and dynamic light scattering of the reaction solutions reveal information about precursor structures and reaction kinetics. A formation mechanism is proposed for the alanine mesocrystals.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2006-06</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Ma, Yurong</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-10-06T07:03:11Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Morphosynthesis of Alanine Mesocrystals by pH Control</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Antonietti, Markus</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-10-06T07:03:11Z</dc:date> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Antonietti, Markus</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
