Abstract

The nucleation, growth, and aggregation of crystals are primarily determined by the electrophysical properties of the outer and inner phaselimit layers of an electrolyte. In our investigations, we tried to resolve whether it is possible to discriminate urine with a ‘high crystallization tendency’ from that with a ‘low crystallization tendency’ by determining the complex impedance and by using cyclic voltametry.
