A Review of the Structures of Vaterite: The Impossible, the Possible, and the Likely

Christy, Andrew


The importance of the metastable vaterite form of CaCO3 is increasingly appreciated as an intermediate between amorphous calcium carbonate and more stable crystalline polymorphs in biogenic calcification pathways. Thus, there is a need to be able to identify nanocrystals of vaterite unambiguously, despite uncertainties about its exact crystal structure. The structures that have been proposed for vaterite are all based upon a common average structure with orientationally disordered carbonate...[Show more]
