Synthesis of Calcium Carbonate from Calcium Chlorine Solution Using Homogeneous Precipitation Method
Calcium carbonate(CaCO3) was synthesized from aqueous CaCl2 solution, using the homogeneous precipitation technique, which uses the hydrolysis of urea. The effects of reaction conditions on the morphology of CaCO3 were examined at 50-90°C. Particle size of CaCO3 decreases, as the concentrations of urea and [Ca2+] are increased. Calcite is produced more, as the concentration of [Ca2+] is increased. Method to stir the reaction solution affects significantly the particle size and morphology of CaCO3. Uniform needle-like aragonite particles were obtained, when left at 90°C for 4hours without stirring.
