As sustainability and environmental awareness are no longer just slogans but required strategies for the future of the planet Earth, environmental protection is becoming ever more a top trending topic in scientific research. We all share the responsibility for environmental protection. Thus, research institutions, professionals, and industries must be involved in this challenge. Among all disciplines, crystal growth may play an unexpected role in environmental protection, remediation, and health.
The goal of this Special Issue on “Crystal growth for environmental protection, remediation, and health” is to provide a comprehensive overview of both the state of the art and recent advances in crystal growth applied to environmental issues.
Scientists working in many areas of crystal growth application are invited to contribute to this Special Issue. Topics of interest include crystals growth for environmental remediation, mineral capture, and storage of carbon dioxide, waste recovery and reuse through crystallization techniques and tailor-made materials for the industry. Furthermore, studies on crystal growth applied to healthy subjects (toxicology and osteopathy, for instance) are welcome.
