The goal of this special issue is to obtain new insights into the roles of crystallography in functional materials. This special issue consists of eight papers illustrating the structure and property relationships, as well as applications of selected classes of materials that deal with various aspects of functional materials, ranging from battery, magnetic, photocatalysis, and waveguide materials, to luminescent metal-organic frameworks and borates, semiconductors, and inorganic electrides. This issue provides further evidence of the importance of crystallography in understanding and improving various properties of functional materials, whether they are single crystals, bulk polycrystalline materials, or thin films.
