    • Abstract


      Surface structures on prism faces of potassium dihydrogen phosphate crystals grown from aqueous solutions and also by gel method are described and illustrated. Density of growth centres increases as the supersaturation of the mother liquor is increased. Gel grown crystals predominantly show rectangular growth hillocks on their prism faces. In the needle shaped crystals further nucleation extends predominantly along theC axis than at right angles to it. Influence of misoriented guest microcrystals on the growth of the prism faces is described.
