Abstract Scope Solution studies have proposed that crystal nucleation can take more complex pathways than expected in classical nucleation theory, such as formation of pre-nucleation cluster or densified amorphous/liquid phase. This reflects that the fluctuations of order parameters, i.e., density and structure, governing crystal nucleation, can be separated. However, direct observation of the multi-pathways of nucleation from aqueous solution is still very challenging because the paths can be distorted by heterogeneous nucleation sites, such as container walls. Here we demonstrate an unprecedentedly deep supersaturation and multiple pathways of nucleation with macroscopic aqueous solutions using the combination of a containerless device (electrostatic levitation), and in-situ micro-Raman and X-ray scattering. In this talk, as well as single crystal growth from the levitated solutions will be shown, evidences will be given that the solution transforms from a low-density to a high-density solution, and the highly supersaturated solution follows unique multi-pathways of crystallization, either a thermodynamically stable or metastable crystal, depending on the degree of supersaturation.
