Abstract

Single crystals of LiH 2PO 4 were grown from an aqueous solution by slow evaporation method, the morphology being observed by optical and scanning electron microscopes and the crystal structure being labeled by powder X-ray diffraction. The virtual crystal was simulated in accord with the realistic crystal observed, with the following faces in the space group Pna2 1-C2v9: pyramid {111}, {111}; prism {110}; dome {011}, {011}, {201}; pedion {001}. From comparison of the macroscopic morphology and the microscopic crystal structure, terminating groups of the top layer surfaces are suggested.
