F240 (2007). Reversed crystal growth of zeolite analcime.
This is the first paper demonstrating the reversed crystal growth route. When aggregation dominates the early stage, the crystal growth will follow a step-by-step process of aggregation, surface re-crystallisation to form a polyhedral shell and extension of re-crystallisation from the surface to the core.
