Abstract

Single crystals of m-Nitroaniline (mNA) were grown by slow cooling solution growth technique. Induction period, interfacial energy and metastable zonewidth have been evaluated. The solubility of mNA has been estimated at different temperatures in acetone and ethanol. Interfacial energy has been estimated using the experimentally determined induction period values. It is observed that the nucleation rate increases with the increase of supersaturation.
