Synthetic inorganic chemists often turn to crystallization to create new inorganic materials for use in catalysis and energy production. These chemists often have to work hard to get all of their reactants into solution, relying on high temperatures and pressures. A new crystal growth method that works at far lower temperatures and pressures promises to make it easier to discover novel complex multielement materials (Inorg. Chem., DOI:
