Fabio Cameli designs cover artwork for CrystEngComm


Fabio Cameli recently published his work in the Journal CrystEngComm. In this work he showed that complete solid-state deracemization can be achieved via microwave-assisted temperature cycling. The combined application of rapid cooling and microwave heating could drastically reduce both process time and the impact of side reactions that lower productivity. On top of this publication he also designed the artwork for ...
