Crystallization is one of the focal points for studies in chemistry, physics, materials science, and chemical engineering. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for researchers in the broad field of inorganic crystallization. The majority of inorganic materials are in the form of crystals, and the diverse disciplines of crystallization studies have contributed to the advancement of the field. Novel compositions of inorganic crystals have been formed to satisfy various engineering needs. Equally important to making the best use of the novel materials are efficient manufacturing processes to generate inorganic crystals or materials in appropriate forms. In the course of such developments, understanding the fundamental aspects of crystallization is inevitably critical. Therefore, this Special Issue is open to the original research and review articles on all aspects of inorganic crystallization, including:
- Fundamentals of crystallization (nucleation, growth, thermodynamics);
- Crystallization control of morphology and polymorphism;
- Structural characterization of novel inorganic crystals;
- Process development for inorganic crystals.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
