Nanosize structure formation during cryocrystallization of eutectic binary solutions

  • M. B. Generalov

A mechanism is proposed for structure formation during crystallization of droplets of aqueous eutectic binary salt solutions in cryogenic liquids. Mathematical description is provided for solution droplet crystallization kinetics with high cooling rates. Results of theoretical determination of salt nanocrystallite sizes formed are compared with experimental data obtained by transmission electron microscopy.
