A forum dedicated to serving the growing worldwide community of researchers working in the area of crystalline materials.
A “devil’s advocate” takes a position he or she does not necessarily agree with for the sake of argument. The Devil's Advocate feature on CGDNetwork promotes discussion of provocative issues and invites discussion or comment on posts made by the Devil's Advocate. Any views or opinions presented in Devil's Advocate do not necessarily represent those of the CGDNetwork, the Community Board of Editors, or the American Chemical Society.

Crystallizing the Community: The Crystal Growth & Design Network serves as a nexus for researchers in crystal science and engineering through community-supported functions (discussion groups on controversial topics; weekly highlights of papers/patents; structure of the week competition; funding opportunities; job and post-doc placement; conference promotion/highlights; book reviews; online polls) and through proactive leadership through the Community Editor and Community Board of Editors (CBOE).
