Abstract
Hypothesis The standard model for diffusion and surface kinetics driven growth of a single spherical particle in solution is applied incorrectly throughout the literature. This leads to inaccurate values for parameter values, such as the diffusion and surface kinetics coefficients. The model cannot even distinguish between diffusion or surface kinetics driven growth. Findings It is shown that crystal growth occurs in two distinct stages. The standard model only holds during the late time. Fitti...
