The anisotropy of all factors influencing the mechanism of spinodal decomposition is considered for crystals of cubic symmetry. It is found that no anisotropy is introduced by the incipient surface, and that elastic aeolotropy should give rise to {100} plane waves if 2C44 − C11 + C12 > 0 or {111} plane waves if 2C44 − C11 + C12< 0. The limit of metastability, the kinetics, morphology and expected mean particle spacing are rederived in terms of the cubic elastic constants.
