Thesis abstract:

Organic molecules, despite being comprised from a small subset of the periodic table have incredible diversity in their chemical and physical properties. While we currently have excellent control and predictability over the chemical properties of organic molecules one area which is not properly understood is the Crystallisation rates of molecules. This research uses simple molecular systems to develop a fundamental understanding of crystallisation with a particular emphasis on the role of shape.
