Book Description:
With the highly competitive development of pharmaceutical and chemical industries, mastering crystal growth is becoming increasingly important. Modern industrial manufacturers place high importance on the ability to grow novel crystals with a specific habit and improve the performance of existed crystals using tailored operating conditions. Therefore, the ability to synthesize a particular morphology and to predict the crystal morphology of new compounds is becoming even more desirable. The recent development of crystal growth is vital for researchers in crystallography and crystallization to respond and realize this objective. With this need in mind, this book mainly targeted at introducing crystal growth from three aspects ranging from basic concepts and detailed mechanisms to advanced applications in hot areas of materials science. This book introduces various experimental and theoretical methods to grow different crystals, which includes the techniques to grow single crystals, CaCO3 polymorphs, metal-organic crystals, liquid crystals, fenamate crystals, cocrystals, and the theoretical models to predict the crystal morphologies within a different environment. From these carefully selected contents, readers will not only learn of the basic theory and experimental techniques implemented, but also keep abreast with both state-of-the-art crystal growth and its overlap with other subjects.
