It is my great pleasure to introduce to you all the exciting Special Issue on “Advances in Ultrasound Stimulated Crystallization”. Crystallization is an important industrial process and the benefits of ultrasound in crystallization is well known but poorly understood. No doubt to the researchers in this field, the mechanism behind sonocrystallization is still contentious. This is not surprising considering ultrasound induce cavitation and crystallization processes are two complex dynamic systems, and when coupled together this complexity is compounded.
This Special Issue hopes to bring together research which showcases the advances in the application of ultrasound in crystallization processes and in particular any work which could shed some light on the mechanism behind sonocrystallization.
