[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In this paper, the research framework for specific structure crystallization modeling has been proposed in which four steps
are required in order to investigate the rigorous crystallization modeling by thermodynamics. The first is the activity coefficient
model of the solution, the second is Solid-Liquid equilibrium, the third and fourth are the dissolution and crystallization
kinetics modeling, respectively. Our investigations show that the mechanisms of complex structure formation and microphase
transition can be analyzed by combining the dissolution and crystallization kinetics modeling. Moreover, the formation mechanism
of the porous KCl has been analyzed, which may provide a reference for the porous structure formation in the advanced material
