Abstract

In situ observation of growth steps on (100) KH//2PO//4 by optical microscopy gives direct evidence for the role of M**3** plus -ions as growth inhibitors. These ions are found to be able to block growth completely below a certain critical supersaturation. Additives such as EDTA, KCl and K//3PO//4 are found to be able to reduce the impurity action to a large extent.
