Next, the Gibbs energy of the seed-solution system naturally decreases as the nucleus increases in its size to form a crystal. The free enthalpy variation corresponding to the crystal embryo formation of diameter d is the difference between the surface energy created and the over-potential Δµ lost in the solution. m−2). 40 Crystallization and Crystallizers We refer to the publication of Nielsen et al. [NIE 71] for numerous values of the surface energy γ. kmol−1). By definition: Δμ = kT(Lna − Lna ∗ ) = kTLn (a / a ∗ ) a : solute activity in solution a ∗ : solute activity at equilibrium In crystallization operations: a /a ∗ > 1 and we assume a/a ∗ =1 + σ that is, σ = a − a∗ a∗ σ : relative supersaturation Finally: Δµ = kTLn (1 + σ ) # kTσ ( if σ << 1) The maximum G is reached when: d( ΔG) π Δμ = 2πγd − d 2 =0 d(d) 2 Ω hence: r∗ = d ∗ 2 γΩ 2 γΩ = = 2 Δμ kTσ ΔG ∗ = 16πγ 3Ω2 3(Δμν) 2 Coefficient ν is added.

5. Attrition on drying: vitrification on grinding Subject to dryer design, crystals can be eroded during drying operations and become rounded as a consequence. Accordingly, a tablet would take a cushion or rounded almond form with a rough surface from a microscopic perspective. Various Properties of Crystals 21 Sugar crystals are susceptible to vitrification when finely ground, but their surface will be smooth. 6. Surface concavity Crystals only present concavities if there are dendrites or macles (interpenetration of two crystals) present or at the beginning of dissolution.

These are known as crystal embryos. As a result of a Δµ supersaturation, the Gibbs energy variation of the embryonic solution (for crystal embryo formation) reaches its maximum. The crystal embryos with the corresponding size are the crystal seeds or nuclei. We should note that it is only by means of statistical fluctuations that the Gibbs energy can increase to its maximum. Next, the Gibbs energy of the seed-solution system naturally decreases as the nucleus increases in its size to form a crystal.
