A new model has been proposed for the prediction of solid–liquid interfacial energy for pure elements. It is assumed that the interface between crystalline solid embryo and bulk liquid consists of a monolayer of atoms having a similar atomic packing factor as that of the crystalline solids. It has been observed that the solid–liquid interfacial energy is a strong function of temperature and structure of the solid and planar density of the interface. The solid–liquid interfacial energy has a lower value close to melting temperature and it reaches a maximum at some intermediate temperature. This model tries to correlate the classical nucleation phenomena and structure model of interfaces.
