About this product
- DescriptionSince the size, shape, and microstructure of nacrystalline materials strongly impact physical and chemical properties, the development of new synthetic routes to nacrystals with controlled composition and morphology is a key objective of the namaterials community. This objective is dependent on control of the nucleation and growth mechanisms that occur during the synthetic process, which in turn requires a fundamental understanding of both classical nucleation and growth and n-classical growth processes in nastructured materials. Recently, a vel growth process called Oriented Attachment (OA) was identified which appears to be a fundamental mechanism during the development of nascale materials. OA is a special case of aggregation that provides an important route by which nacrystals grow, defects are formed, and unique-often symmetry-defying-crystal morphologies can be produced. This growth mechanism involves reversible self-assembly of primary nacrystals followed by reorientation of the assembled naparticles to achieve structural accord at the particle-particle interface, the removal of adsorbates and solvent molecules, and, finally, the irreversible formation of chemical bonds to produce new single crystals, twins, and intergrowths. Crystallization and Growth of Colloidal Nacrystals provides a current understanding of the mechanisms related to nucleation and growth for use in controlling nacrystal morphology and physical-chemical properties, and is essential reading for any chemist or materials scientist with an interest in using nacrystals as building blocks for larger structures. This book provides a compendium for the expert reader as well as an excellent introduction for advanced undergraduate and graduate students seeking a gateway into this dynamic area of research.
