Abstract

Abstract The concept of the minimum crystal size which claims that crystals suspended in an agitated supersaturated solution are necessary to grow over a critical size to produce secondary nuclei is discussed. The conventional technique used for obtaining the value of the minimum crystal size is criticized. The minimum crystal size is estimated to be much smaller than the literature value which lies in the order of magnitude of 100 μm (radius of the equivalent sphere).
