DNA action on the growth and habit modification of NaCl crystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

A large number of studies have been devoted to the preparation of different morphologies of NaCl crystals. In this work, we first use DNA as an additive to prepare hopper-like NaCl crystals and modulate the size of these hopper-like NaCl crystals using silver nitrate. This work helps us not only to understand the growth of NaCl crystals, but also to use DNA as an additive to design and synthesize different crystal structures.
