Inclusions, Occlusions, and Surface Adsorbates

Three examples of impurities that may form during precipitation. The cubic frame represents the precipitate and the blue marks are impurities: (a) inclusions, (b) occlusions, and (c) surface adsorbates. Inclusions are randomly distributed throughout the precipitate. Occlusions are localized within the interior of the precipitate and surface adsorbates are localized on the precipitate’s exterior. For ease of viewing, in (c) adsorption is shown on only one surface.
