Effect of Modification by WTP-08 on Dispersity of Nanosized CalciumCarbonate and Its Mechanism
The dispersity of nanosized calcium carbonate modified by alkyl amine dimethyl phosphonic acid (WTP-08) through mechano-chemical method in different media was investigated. The modification mechanism was investigated by analyzing the surface energy and its thermodynamic effect on dispersity of nanosized calcium carbonate. The results show that the free energies of nanosized calcium carbonate modified by WTP-08 and its interfacial free energies in air and non-polar media decrease significantly, while the interfacial free energy in water increases remarkably. It can be concluded that modification by WTP-08 improves the dispersion tendency of nanosized calcium carbonate in air and non-polar medium, while it decreases in water. Therefore, modification by WTP-08 makes the dispersity of nanosized calcium carbonate increase in air and non-polar medium and decrease in water.
