Helmut Cölfen and Markus Antonietti Mesocrystals: Inorganic Superstructures Made by Highly Parallel Crystallization and Controlled Alignment Angewandte Chemie International Edition 44
Nonclassical Crystallization: Mesocrystals are superstructures of well-aligned nanoparticles, which exhibit common outer faces on the mm or μm scale (see picture, right: SEM image of dl-alanine). They are usually built up from nonspherical nanoparticles which allows for further degrees of orientational freedom so that only very little is known about mesocrystal formation. Mesocrystals are examples of nonclassical crystallization, which were only recently discovered.
