Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Molecular, crystalline materials form the basis of many of the products which have transformed our lives over the last century, from paints (pigments) through chocolate (triglycerides) to pharmaceuticals. Industrial and academic interest in the formation of these solids through crystallisation has never been greater. This focus article looks at the reasons for this and discusses the prospects for significant future advances.
