Precipitation is the creation of a solid from a solution. When the reaction occurs in a liquid solution, the solid formed is called the precipitate. The chemical that causes the solid to form is called the precipitant. Often the precipitate emerges as a suspension. Precipitates can also form when the temperature of a solution is lowered. Lower temperatures reduce the solubility of salts, which may result in their precipitation as solids.
Precipitation may indicate a chemical reaction has occurred, but it may also occur if solute concentration exceeds its solubility. Precipitation is preceded by an event called nucleation, which is when small insoluble particles aggregate with each other or else form an interface with a surface, such as the wall of a container or a seed crystal.
