Mesocrystals: Past, Presence, Future
AbstractIn this review, we briefly summarize the history of mesocrystal research. We introduce the current structural definition of mesocrystals and discuss the appropriate base for the classification of mesocrystals and their relations with other classes of solid state materials in terms of their structure. Building up on this, we comment on the problems in mesocrystal research both fundamental and methodological. Additionally, we make the short overview of the mesocrystal formation principles and synthetic routes used for their fabrications. As an outlook into the future, we highlight the most notable trends in mesocrystal research and developments. View Full-Text
