Abstract

Ice crystal growth is strongly inhibited by the adsorption of antifreeze glycoprotein on ice/water interfaces. Growth experiments were carried out to clarify the adsorption states of AFGP and growth prohibition mechanism. A new model for the AFGP adsorption "two-steps reversible adsorption prohibition" was proposed to understand the experimental results.
