We are pleased to announce the publication of Faraday Discussion 159 on Crystallisation – A Biological Perspective
In the volume you can find all the papers and exciting discussion from the conference held in Leeds Metropolitan University, UK in September 2012. You can read more about what went on in our previous post.
Highlights in this volume include:
The Spiers Memorial lecture given by Daan Frenkel:
Effect of interaction specificity on the phase behaviour of patchy particles
Nicolas Dorsaz, Laura Filion, Frank Smallenburg and Daan Frenkel
A metastable liquid precursor phase of calcium carbonate and its interactions with polyaspartate
Mark A. Bewernitz, Denis Gebauer, Joanna Long, Helmut Cölfen and Laurie B. Gower
The thermodynamics of calcite nucleation at organic interfaces: Classical vs. non-classical pathways
Q. Hu, M. H. Nielsen, C. L. Freeman, L. M. Hamm, J. Tao, J. R. I. Lee, T. Y. J. Han, U. Becker, J. H. Harding, P. M. Dove and J. J. De Yoreo
Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of meetings which provide a unique international platform for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry and its boundaries with other areas of science. The latest Impact Factor is 5.0.
