We show that some corrections to the work of formation predicted by the Classical Nucleation Theory (CNT) can be derived from a simple cluster model based on the density profile for the planar phase interface. These corrections are related to the Tolman length and to the thickness of the phase interface. We analyze the temperature dependencies of these corrections based on critical scaling and compare them with results of the density gradient theory (DGT).
