Investigation of Mechanical Agitation in the Dynamics of the Electrochemical Growth of Organic Crystals in a Nanoliter Cell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Growth dynamics of a nano-sized organic conductor typically synthesized by the electrochemical method are investigated in a nanoliter growth cell with a systematically varied mechanical agitation. Irreversibility of the new and conventional polymorph observed here indicates a metastability of this new polymorph. A theoretical model of microscopic ionic motion and fluid dynamics is developed to explain this behavior and its connection to exploring new phases through agitated electrochemical growth in nanoscale.
