Abstract

Containerless crystallization of benzophenone and containerless melting of a cycloolefin polymer were performed under magnetic levitation conditions. It was found that the growth mechanism changes from dendritic growth to facet growth with decreasing the supercooling degree in the crystallization of benzophenone. In the case of containerless melting and solidification of a cycloolefin polymer, spherical samples were obtained by a homogeneous heating in an electric furnace with a heatproof bore scope.
