A solvent can have a large influence on the crystal morphology. A molecular modeling technique based on the adsorption of solvent molecules on a crystal surface has been used to predict the influence of a solvent on the morphology of RDX. The predicted morphology has been compared with the experimentally found morphology of RDX crystallized from several solvents by cooling crystallization. © 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
