Formatted abstract
Dahle and Hillert comment on the recent article by Shankar et al that tries to prove that each plate of Si in the ordinary Al-Si eutectic is nucleated individually by the action of a small iron-containing particle. They say that Shankar and colleagues justified their study by the need for a more complete understanding of the Al-Si eutectic reaction in the absence of chemical modifiers in order to shed light on the complicated mechanisms operating in chemically modified Al-Si alloys. Shankar and colleagues defend that their work on Nucleation Mechanism of the Eutectic Phases in Aluminum-Silicon Hypoeutectic Alloys, addresses the nucleation aspects and not the growth aspects of the eutectic reaction.
