Thus, the ice crystal nucleation process is very important [2-4].
This temperature is the nucleation temperature ([T.sub.n]) or the subcooling temperature ([T.sub.sub]).
Moreover, according to the classical nucleation theory, there are the fluctuations of composition, microstructure and energy in the interfaces between cementite and ferrite, which is beneficial to form an austenite nucleus.
2015), can raise the nucleation temperature, a molecular-scale picture of why materials of disparate chemical composition and structural order can have similar ice nucleation efficiency is lacking.
Ruckenstein and Berim present this textbook on the Ruckenstein-Narsimhan-Nowakowski kinetic theory of nucleation (RNNT), as an alternative to classical nucleation theory (CNT).
The nucleation always initiates from the trijunction and propagates into the drop volume with different structural morphologies determined by temperatures and surface hydrophobicity of the substrate.
Here the nucleation side of the free standing coating was selected for the cell culture study (as-grown surface of PCD was very rough), since the cell survival rate was found to be higher on the smooth diamond surface (26).
Induction time contains information about nucleation kinetics of new phase and it has a reverse proportion with nucleation rate.
Simply placing vials on a shelf and lowering the shelf temperature leads to heterogeneous nucleation and non-uniform crystal growth, which impede primary drying.
Summary: The nucleation effect and thermal behavior of bisamides compound(N, N'-Bis(benzoyl) tridecanedioic acid dihydrazide (NA)) as organic nucleating agent for poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA) was evaluated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), polarized optical microscopy (POM) and wide angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD).
