Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The micromolar chemical lives of crystals are extraordinarily rich. This is especially true of potassium acid phthalate (KAP) which is able to orient and overgrow many complex organic dye molecules. KAP mixed crystals illustrate a number of concepts in solution crystal growth that are reviewed herein. The micromolar chemical lives of crystals are extraordinarily rich.
