New Spectrophotometric Method for Measuring Calcium-Oxalate-Monohydrate Crystal Aggregation in the Absence of Supersaturation
Based on the fact that aggregation in equilibrated suspensions of calcium-oxalate-monohydrate (COM) crystals is more prominent at lower stirring rates (1), a method for measuring COM crystal aggregation in the absence of supersaturation was developed.
