  • Abstract The growth kinetics of urea in the [001] and [110] directions are presented for both pure solutions and solutions containing up to 6% biuret. This impurity is formed during the synthesis of urea and acts as a powerful habit modifier. In pure solutions urea grows very quickly in the [001] but very slowly in the [110] direction. As a result long needle-like crystals are produced. In the presence of biuret [001] growth is dramatically reduced while [110] growth is virtually unaffected, so… CONTINUE READING
