Morphological influence of magnesium and organic additives on the precipitation of calcite

Meldrum, F; Hyde, Stephen


Calcium carbonate was precipitated from saturated solutions of calcium bicarbonate in the presence of magnesium and organic additives in order to investigate the effect of Mg-incorporation on calcite morphologies. A range of concentrations of Mg and organic additives were investigated, and the structure, composition and morphologies of the crystals were determined using X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy. The action of the organic additives in Mg-free solutions was highly specific,...[Show more]
