It is often said that a crystal in a saturated solution neither grows nor dissolves, however, this is an equilibrium so there must be some flux between the crystal and the solution. The question is how could this be measured. The aim of this work was to develop a method to make this measurement, as a prelude to investigating the effect of ultrasound on the rate of molecular exchange between the surface layer of a growing crystal and the surrounding slightly supersaturated solution.
