Making Crystals by Design: Methods, Techniques and Applications (3527315063) cover image
An excellent overview of the manifold aspects of modern crystal engineering. From design and preparation to spectroscopy and applications, this handbook both covers and evaluates all aspects of crystal engineering. Clearly structured, it provides an overview of the current status as seen from its various angles as well as a comparison of different techniques and applications.
An essential source of high quality information for everyone working in this booming and interdisciplinary field: spectroscopists, physical and inorganic chemists as well as materials scientists working in nanotechnology and the pharmaceutical industry.
