Crystallization of mixed alkaline-earth carbonates in alkaline silica solutions

Eiblmeier, Josef ; Dankesreiter, Stephan ; Pfitzner, Arno ; Schmalz, Gottfried ; Kunz, Werner ; Kellermeier, Matthias


The ability of silica to influence the mineralization of alk.-earth carbonates is an outstanding example for the formation of biomimetic structures in the absence of any org. matter. Under suitable conditions, silica-stabilized carbonate nanocrystals can spontaneously self-assemble into hierarchical materials with complex morphologies, commonly referred to as "silica biomorphs". However, growth ...
