Asymmetric Crystal Growth of Resorcinol from the Vapor Phase: Surface reconstruction and conformational change are the Culprits.
NoThe growth of crystals of a-resorcinol from the vapor phase is asymmetric along the polar axis. By means of molecular-dynamics simulations, the slower growth at the (011) polar surface is traced back to conformational change of the molecule and to surface reconstruction, which may be a general phenomenon in polar crystals
