Anomalous Behavior of the Homogeneous Ice Nucleation Rate in “No-Man’s Land”


where D0 is the pre-exponential factor, and ED is the activation energy for diffusion in the liquid. We assume ED is temperature dependent. In the CNT formalism, ED also represents the activation energy (∆f) for water molecules to jump across the solid-liquid interface.9 Thus, there are two barriers to ice nucleation where ∆F describes the thermodynamic barrier while ∆f represents the kinetic barrier. Also within CNT, the thermodynamic barrier is given by3 ∆F = 16πσsl 3 υms 2
