Crystals and Plants
What will the likely effects of crystallized filaments in
plant cells be?
I had noticed that moth balls (para dichlorbenzene) tends within a very
short temperature range to transform from a solid to gas and back to
solid in the form of crystal filaments.
I been wondering about the likely effects of an experiment in which a
plant is placed in a chamber saturated with the fumes of a substance
that had the same transformation properties of its state but none of the
toxic effects be on the plants and will such filaments form inside the
cell and rearrange its DNA strands or kill it outright?
