O. D. Linnikov – Institute of Solid State Chemistry, Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Ekaterinburg, Russia; firstname.lastname@example.org
The attempt to consider the influence of particle solvation of dissolved substances on the nucleation and growth of crystals during crystallization from solutions in classical thermodynamic theory of nucleation has been undertaken. A number of interesting relations between the activation energies of nucleation and of crystal growth are obtained. Comparison to the published literature data is carried out.
Keywords: activation energy, solvation, nucleation, growth of crystals, solution, dissolved substance, hydration.
