phenomenon in solid solutions or liquid

sols that describes the change of an

inhomogeneous structure over time, i.e.,

small crystals or sol particles dissolve,

and redeposit onto larger crystals or sol

particles.[3]

particles and the redeposition of the

dissolved species on the surfaces of

larger crystals or sol particles was ﬁrst

described by Wilhelm Ostwald in 1896.[4][5]

Ostwald ripening is generally found in

water-in-oil emulsions, while ﬂocculation is

found in oil-in-water emulsions.[6]

Mechanism

This thermodynamically-driven

spontaneous process occurs because

larger particles are more energetically

favored than smaller particles.[7] This

stems from the fact that molecules on the

surface of a particle are energetically less

stable than the ones in the interior.

Cubic crystal structure (sodium chloride)

atoms inside are bonded to 6 neighbors

and are quite stable, but atoms on the

surface are only bonded to 5 neighbors or

fewer, which makes these surface atoms

less stable. Large particles are more

energetically favorable since, continuing

with this example, more atoms are bonded

to 6 neighbors and fewer atoms are at the

unfavorable surface. As the system tries

to lower its overall energy, molecules on

the surface of a small particle

(energetically unfavorable, with only 3 or 4

or 5 bonded neighbors) will tend to detach

from the particle, as per the Kelvin

equation, and diffuse into the solution.

When all small particles do this, it

increases the concentration of free

molecules in solution. When the free

molecules in solution are supersaturated,

the free molecules have a tendency to

condense on the surface of larger

particles.[7] Therefore, all smaller particles

shrink, while larger particles grow, and

overall the average size will increase. As

time tends to inﬁnity, the entire population

of particles becomes one large spherical

particle to minimize the total surface area.

quantitatively modeling Ostwald ripening

is long, with many derivations.[8] In 1958,

Lifshitz and Slyozov[9] performed a

mathematical investigation of Ostwald

ripening in the case where diffusion of

material is the slowest process. They

began by stating how a single particle

grows in a solution. This equation

describes where the boundary is between

small, shrinking particles and large,

growing particles. They ﬁnally conclude

that the average radius of the particles ⟨R⟩,

grows as follows:

where

=average radius of all the particles

particle surface tension or surface

energy

=solubility of the particle material

=molar volume of the particle material

=

=ideal gas constant

=absolute temperature and

=time.

from ⟨R3⟩, and only the latter one can be

used to calculate average volume, and that

the statement that ⟨R⟩ goes as t1/3 relies

on ⟨R⟩0 being zero; but because nucleation

is a separate process from growth, this

places ⟨R⟩0 outside the bounds of validity

of the equation. In contexts where the

actual value of ⟨R⟩0 is irrelevant, an

approach that respects the meanings of all

terms is to take the time derivative of the

equation to eliminate ⟨R⟩0 and t. Another

such approach is to change the ⟨R⟩0 to

⟨R⟩i with the initial time i having a positive

value.

derivation is an equation for the size

distribution function f(R, t) of particles.

For convenience, the radius of particles is

divided by the average radius to form a

new variable, ρ = R(⟨R⟩)−1.

published their ﬁndings (in Russian, 1958),

Carl Wagner performed his own

mathematical investigation of Ostwald

ripening,[10] examining both systems

where diffusion was slow and also where

attachment and detachment at the particle

surface was slow. Although his

calculations and approach were different,

Wagner came to the same conclusions as

Lifshitz and Slyozov for slow-diffusion

systems. This duplicate derivation went

unnoticed for years because the two

scientiﬁc papers were published on

opposite sides of the Iron Curtain in 1961.

It was not until 1975 that Kahlweit

addressed the fact that the theories were

identical[11] and combined them into the

Lifshitz-Slyozov-Wagner or LSW theory of

Ostwald ripening. Many experiments and

simulations have shown LSW theory to be

robust and accurate. Even some systems

that undergo spinodal decomposition have

been shown to quantitatively obey LSW

theory after initial stages of growth.[12]

Wagner derived that when attachment and

detachment of molecules is slower than

diffusion, then the growth rate becomes

attachment with units of length per time.

Since the average radius is usually

something that can be measured in

experiments, it is fairly easy to tell if a

system is obeying the slow-diffusion

equation or the slow-attachment equation.

If the experimental data obeys neither

equation, then it is likely that another

mechanism is taking place and Ostwald

ripening is not occurring.

were intended for solids ripening in a ﬂuid,

Ostwald ripening is also observed in liquid-

liquid systems, for example, in an oil-in-

water emulsion polymerization.[6] In this

case, Ostwald ripening causes the

diffusion of monomers (i.e. individual

molecules or atoms) from smaller droplets

to larger droplets due to greater solubility

of the single monomer molecules in the

larger monomer droplets. The rate of this

diffusion process is linked to the solubility

of the monomer in the continuous (water)

phase of the emulsion. This can lead to

the destabilization of emulsions (for

example, by creaming and

sedimentation).[13]

Speciﬁc examples

Ostwald ripening.

An everyday example of Ostwald ripening

is the re-crystallization of water within ice

cream which gives old ice cream a gritty,

crunchy texture. Larger ice crystals grow

at the expense of smaller ones within the

ice cream, creating a coarser texture.[14]

cloudy microemulsion grow by Ostwald

ripening.

crystals in solid rock which is below the

solidus temperature. It is often ascribed as

a process in the formation of orthoclase

of larger crystals from those of smaller

size which have a higher solubility than the

larger ones. In the process, many small

crystals formed initially slowly disappear,

except for a few that grow larger, at the

expense of the small crystals. The smaller

crystals act as fuel for the growth of

bigger crystals. Limiting Ostwald ripening

is fundamental in modern technology for

the solution synthesis of quantum dots.[16]

Ostwald ripening is also the key process in

the digestion of precipitates, an important

step in gravimetric analysis. The digested

precipitate is generally purer, and easier to

wash and ﬁlter.

diffusing from small droplets to large ones

through the continuous phase. When a

miniemulsion is desired, an extremely

hydrophobic compound is added to stop

this process from taking place.
