    • Abstract


      The preparation and characterization (salient ones) of KAl (SO4)2. 12H2O, KCr (SO4)2·12H2O, mixed crystals of both with 10 to 90% of each component, mixed crystals of CsCl with CuCl2, doped crystals of KBr with K3FeCN6, mixed crystals (NH4)2SO4 with CuSO4 or NiSO4, NaCl with growth improver Pb+2, Mn+2, metallic crystals of Zn, Bi, ionic crystals of alkali halides with Pb+2, or Cd+2, etc. are presented. Instrumentation aspects of a rotary crystallizer, a homogeniser, an ingot release mechanism and a zone refiner are shown.
