Call for Papers for Crystallization and Assembly at Interfaces

This MRS Advances special issue will highlight recent advances in the crystallization and assembly of atoms, molecules, and particles at interfaces, with a particular focus on mechanistic approaches developed to understand the underlying pathways for materials design and development. In almost all branches of materials research, these processes play a crucial role in defining the structure and morphology of synthetic materials, conversion and performance of energy storage devices, texture and properties of surfaces and substrates, and more. This special issue will highlight the crystallization and assembly of both atomic/molecular species and larger building blocks, including particles, biological macromolecules, and polymers. New results in the thermodynamics, kinetics, and evolution pathways of interfacial crystallization and assembly will be particularly encouraged.

Submission Deadline: February 29, 2024
