Early Stages Of Crystallization Of Calcium Carbonate
Facile fabrication of chitosan-calcium carbonate nanowall arrays and their use as a sensitive non-enzymatic organophosphate pesticide sensor. Gong J(1), Zhang W, Liu T, Zhang L. Author information (1)Key Laboratory of Pesticide Chemical Biology of Ministry of Education, College of Chemistry, Central China Normal University, Wuhan, 430079.Feb 18, 2016 Polymorph selection during shell or pearl formation has been an intriguing issue, especially for those species of interest for human consumption. The polymorph switching of calcium carbonate controlled by amorphous calcium carbonate-binding protein (ACCBP), an extrapallial fluid (EPF) protein from the pearl oyster identified by our group in 2007, is investigated in this research.Aug 29, 2007 We analyze the observed structural distinctions between calcium carbonate crystals of biogenic and non-biogenic origin in terms of interaction between organic macromolecules and growing mineral. We conclude that rather strong forces are imposed by organic macromolecules on mineral crystallites, which cause lattice strains of about 0.2 . According to the developed model, these strains.
