This volume aims to provide insights into the importance of the basic research principles of crystal growth and their practical applications. The essential fundamentals of methods of crystal growth and their technological use are covered in the introductory chapters. Subsequent chapters reveal their applications in practice. The range of topics covered is diverse and includes the systematic quantitative experimental studies on solute-solvent interactions, nucleation phenomena, final crystal number and size, crystallization temperatures and rates of cooling.
