Rod-shaped barium sulfate particles from a completely inorganic system
MetadataShow full item record
Rod-shaped barium sulfate particles can be formed from purely inorganic systems at 75 1C and theseparticles are single crystals elongated in the c-axis. This c-axis growth promotion relative to the othercrystal faces is absent when the cation impurities are absent suggesting a specific interaction of thecations with the growing crystal. Attempts have been made to determine the cause of this c-axisgrowth promotion, but no one mechanism appears to adequately explain this effect and it may be dueto a combination of different impacts. The same cations do not induce rod-shaped particles at 25 1C,thus suggesting an important role of kinetics in the crystallization of these particles. Finally, previousreports suggesting that the formation of rod-like particles is due to the presence of an organic additivemay be incorrect as sufficient sodium ions may have been present to give these particles even in their absence.

Influence of particle size and tunable interactions on isotropic–nematic transition of block copolymer single crystal platelet suspensionsJiang, Chunbo; Huang, Haiying; Ma, Cungui; He, Tianbai; Zhang, Fajun (2013)We have studied the influence of the particle size and the tunable lateral interactions on the isotropic–nematic (I–N) phase transition of a plate-like colloidal system. The particles are single crystals of a block copolymer ...

Direct Observation of Spiral Growth, Particle Attachment, and Morphology Evolution of HydroxyapatiteLi, M.; Wang, L.; Zhang, W.; Putnis, C.; Putnis, Andrew (2016)The two main pathways for the growth of calcium phosphates are either via the addition of monomeric chemical species to existing steps or via the attachment of precursor particles. Although recent experimental evidence ...
