Abstract:

1,4-Di-tert-butylbenzene (DTBB) was crystd. from several org. solvents to study the effect of solvents and crystn. conditions on its habit. The length to width ratio of DTBB crystals varies from 1.2 to 20 being correlated directly to the max. attainable supersatn. Some effect of elongation was detected caused by addn. of impurities to the crystg. soln. A special crystal habit modification of acicular outgrowths was noted in crystals grown from tert-butyl-alc. The appearance of outgrowths is ascribed to solvent-solute alignment induced by structural compatibility of the DTBB mol. and tert-butyl-alc. dimers. [on SciFinder(R)]
