Title: Shaping up: Spontaneous formation of ordered mesoscopic salt bowls
Authors: Krishna K.S.
Kumar, B. V.V.S.Pavan

Published in: RSC Advances
Abstract: The spontaneous formation of hexagonally organized, mesoscopic salt-bowls is reported here by a simple heating of manganous sulphate salt with a polyvinylpyrrolidone polymer. The crystallization of salt around the gas bubble during the decomposition of polymer leaves strikingly beautiful mesoscopic structures. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2012.
