Isotopic measurement by mass spectroscopy was for the first time applied to the secondary nucleation products formed in a supersaturated H2O-alum solution in the presence of a seed crystal containing D2O. It was shown that fine particles were chipped off from the seed into the solution and act as centres for secondary nucleation.
