Effect of natural acidic macromolecules on calcium carbonate precipitation
The study of the influence of natural acidic macromolecules, extracted from the skeleton of sea corals, on precipitation of CaCO3 polymorphs, calcite and aragonite.
Interactions of organic additives with calcite crystals of different morphologies
The objective of the project is to study the interactions of organic additives, particularly phosphonates and
carboxylates, with calcite crystals of different morphologies.
