dc.description.abstract The statistics of liquid-to-crystal nucleation are measured for clathrate-forming mixtures of tetrahydrofuran and water using an automatic lag time apparatus (ALTA). We measure the nucleation temperature where a single sample is repeatedly cooled, nucleated and thawed. This is done for a series of tetrahydrofuran concentrations and in several different sample tubes since the nucleation is heterogeneous and occurring on the tube wall. The measurements are also done at the same concentrations and tubes but with an added catalyst, a single crystal of silver iodide. We discuss the need for this type of measurement if the true nucleation temperature of the clathrate is to be found. Comparisons are also made with our high pressure data on real-world clathrate formers. en
