Transient kinetics of nucleation


Analytical solutions for the time-dependent cluster concentrations and nucleation rate in homogeneous nucleation are obtained by the singular perturbation approach. The effect of cluster scavenging by free molecule particles on the kinetics of nucleation is also investigated through analogous analytical solutions in this case. Apparent conflicting suggestions in the literature concerning the time lag of nucleation are resolved.
