Coverage This bibliography of over 5000 references is restricted to the crystal growth of inorganic materials and is largely drawn from the literature collection of the Research Materials Information Center, although other sources were used in the attempt to attain (an always unattainable) completeness. It includes theoretical, review, and experimental, or "recipe," papers, technical reports, and books. The period covered is from 1972 through 1977, with several hundred more recent and earlier references, for var- ious reasons, added. (I nformation on specific materials not I isted may be requested from R M C. ) I The coverage of epitaxy presented a problem, since authors do not always make it clear whether or not the epitaxial growth described resulted in single or polycrystalline structures. Papers are of course included where single crystallinity was claimed or illustrated by a definite electron diffraction pattern. Stated attempts to grow single crystals, even when failures, are included. As for the many where a decision could not be made, exclusion was the general rule. Theoretical and review papers are included. Two books, ofthe many good books on crystal growth, are essential complements to this bibliography: The Chemistry of Imperfect Crystals, 2nd Revised Edition.
