Morphology Engineering of Advanced Materials
Abstract:Advanced materials possessing single or combined advanced physical and chemical properties and consequently performing specific function, are vital in order to meet our society's environmental and economic progress. Meeting these needs requires us to understand the determinant factors in material's properties, and to develop advanced fabrication techniques. The phenomenal recent progress in fabricating multifarious morphologies of functional materials has opened up new vistas of opportunity. But this dominance is now being challenged by the exquisite control of crystallization of matter on any length scale, from atoms and ions to biomolecules to nano- and microparticles, and it is still rather difficult to determine the key parameters in morphology control. Here we review progresses in the morphology engineering of advanced materials, from the theoretical understanding of relationship between the properties and morphology, to the fabrication of various morphologies as well as their practical applications, and then to the theoretical simulations aiming at the exploration of influence factors on material morphology.
