Effect of bulk pH and supersaturation on the growth behavior of silica biomorphs in alkaline solutions

Eiblmeier, Josef ; Kellermeier, Matthias ; Rengstl, Doris ; García-Ruiz, Juan Manuel ; Kunz, Werner


Under certain conditions, mineralization of barium carbonate in silica-contg. media at high pH results in the formation of complex crystal aggregates called "silica biomorphs". These self-assembled, purely inorg. materials exhibit hierarchical structure and curved morphologies much reminiscent of certain living forms, thus constituting an interesting model system for the study of the ...
