Yitzhak Mastai

Prof. Yitzhak Mastai was born in 1966 in Tel Aviv Israel. He obtained his B.Sc in physical chemistry from Bar-Ilan University in 1989 and received his PhD from the Weizmann Institute of Science with Prof. Gary Hodes on nanomaterials synthesis (1999). He then went to the Max Planck institute of colloids and interfaces for 3 years, as postdoctoral fellow to work with Prof. M. Antonietti and Prof. H Cölfen on biomimetic chemistry and chiral polymers. In 2003 joined the staff of the chemistry department at Bar-Ilan University, where he is currently a Professor at the institute of nanotechnology at Bar-Ilan University leading the nano chirality laboratory. Prof. Mastai’s earlier interests included nanomaterials synthesis and characterization. His current research is focused on the synthesis and analysis of chiral nanosurfaces, chiral self-assembled monolayers and polymeric chiral nanoparticles. Mastai has published more than 100 scientific articles and book chapters on various aspects of nanomaterials and chirality at the nanoscale.

Crystallization is used at some stage in nearly all process industries as a method of production, purification or recovery of solid materials. In recent years, a number of new applications have also come to rely on crystallization processes such as the crystallization of nano and amorphous materials. The articles for this book have been contributed by the most respected researchers in this area and cover the frontier areas of research and developments in crystallization processes. Divided into five parts this book provides the latest research developments in many aspects of crystallization including: chiral crystallization, crystallization of nanomaterials and the crystallization of amorphous and glassy materials. This book is of interest to both fundamental research and also to practicing scientists and will prove invaluable to all chemical engineers and industrial chemists in the process industries as well as crystallization workers and students in industry and academia.
