    • Abstract


      To study the growth mechanism of {111} faces of NaBrO3, crystals were grown at different supersaturations ranging from 2% to 8%. The growth mechanisms were investigated based on the growth rate versus supersaturation relation and from the surface features observed on {111} faces. The growth mechanism of these crystals appear to be due to 2D nucleation. The growth rate curve has been further investigated using Ohara and Reid equations. Polynucleation model in two-dimensional nucleation growth theory is suggested as the most possible growth mechanism for these crystals in the present supersaturation range.
