Crystallizing thoughts on organic

For the first time, researchers have used high-speed X-ray cameras to capture the details revealed by a bright, synchrotron X-ray beam to give them a movie of what occurs when an organic molecule crystallizes. Stanford University's Zhenan Bao and her team dissolved organic molecules and deposited the solution on to a flat surface, they were able to control the solvent evaporation process and observe crystallization by working with Aram Amassian of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia.
