Scientific thinkers come together at pan-European Crystallize meeting

Computational Physics Group

Scientific thinkers from around Europe will come together for the annual meeting of COST Crystallize. This year the crystallisation-focused meeting is taking place at the University of Lincoln in the UK.

Crystallisation – the process of crystal formation via crystal nucleation and growth – is typically employed in chemical manufacturing as a purification step or to isolate a final product and determine its quality. Despite its widespread uses, understanding the precise molecular mechanisms which occur during crystallisation remains a scientific challenge, particularly for organic compounds.

The Crystallize research network, led by Dr Simon Lawrence of the University of Cork and funded by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology), brings together leaders in the field to develop new ideas, research and share knowledge in the science of crystallisation, covering solution, nucleation, growth and applications within crystal engineering.

The annual meeting of the Crystallize COST Action CM1402 group, involving scientists from 27 different countries…
