- covers the theory, research, applications and control of crystallization processes from a homogeneous liquid to a solid phase.
- considers the behaviour of ions and molecules in homogeneous supersaturated solutions and also in liquid metals and ionic melts.
- discusses recent work on ionic solvation? desolvation phenomena, association of ions and molecules in solution and precipitation and dissolution of crystals.
- includes the mechanism of crystallization of calcium carbonate and other simple inorganic electrolytes, amino acids, lipids and proteins.
