##### Abstract
The interactions between additives and mineral precursors and intermediates are at the heart of additive-controlled crystallisation, which is of high importance for various fields. In this commentary, we reflect on potential modes of additive control according to classical nucleation theory on one hand, and from the viewpoint of the so-called pre-nucleation cluster pathway on the other. This includes a brief review of the corresponding literature. While the roles of additives are discussed generally, i.e., without specific chemical or structural details, corresponding properties are outlined where possible. Altogether, our discussion illustrates that “non-classical” nucleation pathways promise an improved understanding of additive-controlled scenarios, which could be utilised in targeted applications in various fields, ranging from scale inhibition to materials chemistry.
