Title: Nucleation and phase transformation pathways in electrolyte solutions investigated by in situ microscopy techniques

Abstract

Identification of crystal nucleation and growth pathways is of fundamental importance for synthesis of functional materials, which requires control over size, orientation, polymorph, and hierarchical structure, often in the presence of additives used to tune the energy landscape defining these pathways. Furthermore we summarize the recent progress in application of in situ TEM and AFM techniques to monitor or even tune the pathway of crystal nucleation and growth.

Fig. 1 Fig. 1: Many wide-ranging crystallization pathways have been proposed and/or observed for electrolyte solutions. In contrast to monomer-by-monomer addition as envisioned in classical models of crystal growth (gray curve), crystallization can occur by the addition of higher-order species ranging from multi-ion complexes to fully formed nanocrystals. Furthermore, the final phasemore » may arise through a transformation from an initial, metastable phase by structural rearrangement or chemical conversion.
