Abstract:

The specific surface of sublimated metaldehyde was determined microscopically on the basis of a simplified mathematical model and known density and was derived from the thickness of the crystals. The deviation of the distribution of crystal thickness from the normal curve was discussed. It was assumed that the tendency of metaldehyde to grow differentially in two directions at different rates was based on the nonisomeric crystal structure and was also influenced by the conditions of the sublimation method.
