Change of Formation Yield and Characterization of PCC Particle Synthesized with Impurity Ions Contents by Carbonation Process
The effect of the impurity ions Al3+, Fe3+ and Mg2+ on the formation yield and crystal properties of precipitated calcium carbonate(PCC) produced by the carbonation process was investigated in Ca(OH)2-H2O-CO2 system. The effect of the impurity ions Al3+, Fe3+ and Mg2+ on the formation yield using particle size distribution and morphology of PCC were discussed. The particle size distribution of PCC was increased with increase of impurity ions. The morphology was transformed in order of spheroidal, scalenohedral, rhombohedral calcite for Al3+, Fe3+ and rhombospheroidal, spherical, scalenohedral for Mg2+ with increase of impurity ions.
