Crystal engineering at interfaces


Mann, S and Heywood, BR, Crystal engineering at interfaces, Chemistry in Britain, 25, (7) pp. 698-700, 712. ISSN 0009-3106 (1989) [Refereed Article]


This paper describes a novel approach to 'crystal engineering', which attempts to control inorganic crystallisation by using organised organic substrates. These substrates act as chemical templates for the nucleation of crystals from aqueous solution. To date only simple systems have been studied, but the goal is to design substrates that will generate crystals with precise properties for technological applications such as in catalysis and magnetic devices.
