WW3 Research on Crystal Lattice Tilting featured on CrystEngComm Cover

Recent Research, lead by Prof. SE Wolf and Dr. J. Harris revealed that crystal lattice tilting, which hardens calcarous mollusk shells, can by generated in vitro by a pseudomorphic phase transformation of a thin, amorphous film of calcium carbonate generated at the air/water-interface. Under proper conditions, the quasi solid-to-solid transformation leads to intense crystal lattice […]
