Leeds Centre for Crystallization


The Leeds Centre for Crystallization is a newly-established centre for crystallization studies and provides a focus for fundamental and applied research in the field of crystals and crystallization at the University of Leeds.

It brings together researchers from across the university, spanning disciplines ranging from engineering to earth sciences, chemistry to physics, and biology to medicine, and thereby facilitates significant cross department and faculty collaboration.

Crystallization is a hugely important topic that lies at the heart of technological processes and natural phenomena as diverse and significant as the production of pharmaceuticals, nanomaterials and biomaterials, bone and teeth formation and regeneration, the precipitation of ice in the atmosphere and the prevention of scale deposition. Understanding of crystal nucleation and growth processes is therefore essential.
