Why is it important?

This review provides a valuable guide for those interested in applying freeze casting for materials design. It is essential reading for researchers using such techniques.


For the first time, we have managed to bring together disparate sources of information to present a practical overview of the field. We the authors hope that this work will serve to catalyze and accelerate research efforts worldwide, and will expedite the implementation of effective freeze casting methods.
