The solid-liquid interfacial free energy has been estimated by a broken-bond model modified to take the entropy loss of the liquid in contact with the crystal into account. The predictions for f.c.c., h.c.p., b.c.c., diamond and s.c. structures are compared with experimental data from supercooling and dihedral angle measurements.
