Diffusion and precipitation processes in iron-based silica gardens

Glaab, F. ; Rieder, J. ; García-Ruiz, J. M. ; Kunz, W. ; Kellermeier, M.



Abstract

Silica gardens are tubular structures that form along the interface of multivalent metal salts and alkaline solutions of sodium silicate, driven by a complex interplay of osmotic and buoyant forces together with chemical reaction. They display peculiar plant-like morphologies and thus can be considered as one of the few examples for the spontaneous biomimetic self-ordering of purely inorganic ...
