Nucleation is one of the processes that involves at the beginning of the certain process like freezing, melting, boiling, condensation and crystallization. This process normally occurs in the industry, where it is involving the thermodynamic phase that involves work, energy and temperature. The nuclei growth happens when the initial phase changes to the other phase. Unfortunately, the detail for the theory of nucleation is not well-known around the people who are working in the industry, even though there are many reports or writings available. Thus, few types of nucleation like homogeneous and heterogeneous nucleation and the other theory of nucleation have been summarized in this chapter.
