Micrometer-sized particles of calcium carbonate were formed by adding NaHCO3 (aq) to a buffered aq. soln. of CaCl2 (aq) and polyelectrolytes. Particle morphol. and crystal polymorphol. were tuned by varying the stirring rate. Vigorous stirring led to the formation of micrometer-sized spherical particles of nanocryst. vaterite; slow stirring formed rhombohedral nanostructured particles of calcite.
