Abstract

It is pointed out that the temperature fitting function of Wölk and Strey [J. Phys. Chem. 105, 11683 (2001)], recently shown to convert the Becker-Döring [Ann. Phys. (Leipzig) 24, 719 (1935)] nucleation rate into an expression in agreement with much of the experimental water nucleation rate data, also converts the Becker-Döring rate into a form nearly equivalent with the scaled nucleation rate model, Jscaled=Joc exp[-16πΩ3(Tc/T-1)3/3(ln S)2]. In the latter expression Joc is the inverse thermal wavelength cubed/sec, evaluated at Tc.
