Non-Classical Morphologies and Polycrystalline patterns

 

 

Overview:

Additive are essential not only in revealing stepwise mechanisms at the unit cell level, they determine the macroscopic consequences of a crystallization process, the morphology of single crystals. A great variety

of recently discovered additive-induced distortions of crystals depend critically on supramolecular selectivity and on the poorly understood elasticity and plasticity of molecular crystals to be analyzed here.
