1 The term crystallite is herein used to mean the coherent X-ray scattering volume which is normally less than or equal to the volume of the “crystal” (if it is an individual) or a “grain” if it is composed of one or more crystals.
Key Words: Boehmite • Crystallite size • Debye scattering equation • Stacking faults • X-ray powder diffraction
