The field of crystal engineering has reached a new level of maturity and demands for a book that provides a state–of–art overview of the field together with a tutorial approach to methods and techniques.

From design and preparation to spectroscopy and applications, this excellent handbook both covers and evaluates all of the manifold aspects of modern crystal engineering. Clearly structured, it summarizes the current status as seen from its various angles, comparing different techniques that are required to tackle successfully solid state synthesis, characterization of solids and evaluation of properties.

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.
