Many factors can affect the course of heterogeneous nucleation, such as surface chemistry, flexibility and topology, substrate concentration and solubility. Atomic-scale defects are rarely investigated in detail and are often considered to be unimportant surface features. In this work, we set out to investigate the significance of atomic-scale defects in a flexible self-assembled monolayer surface for the behaviour of clusters of Ca2+ and CO32- ions in water. To this end, we use moleculardoi:10.1039/d1fd00082a pmid:35380136 fatcat:k4oitnycs5awrgqupsqn6qmij4
