    Abstract

    Experimental evidence suggests dissolution along the polar c-axis of a-resorcinol in water preferentially occurs at the {011} surface. In an attempt to understand the mechanism by which solvent influences this process, dissolution at the resorcinol {011} and {011} surfaces has been studied using Molecular Dynamics simulations. Our computations indicate dissolution at the two faces is dependent upon solvent behaviour at the crystal surface, where strong water-crystal interactions serve to stabilise the crystal surface and retard dissolution.
