Abstract We present results from recent crystallization studies on marginal binary suspensions of colloidal particles. As small amounts of the second component are added, crystallization slows, and in some cases may cease altogether. The results support a growth mechanism whereby crystallization occurs in conjunction with a local fractionation process near the crystal-fluid interface, significantly altering the kinetics of crystallite nucleation and growth.
