Short summary
This work develops a model for ice formation mediated by particles immersed within droplets. Ice nucleation is not only enhanced by the modification of the thermodynamic properties of the vicinal water but is also inhibited by decreased water mobility near the particle. The ice nucleation rate is thus determined by competing kinetic and thermodynamic factors during ice formation. A new regime where ice nucleation is mediated mainly by kinetics instead of thermodynamics is discovered.
