Topic: Re: Supersaturation chemicals

Supersaturation is always defined as what is in excess in the mother liquor versus what should be there based on the thermodynamics and solubility curve, regardless of the temperature. It is highly unusual to have a reversal in solubility trend with an increase in temperature. Perhaps you are dealing with hydrates, solvates or even polymorphs.
