Divalent cation-induced variations in polyelectrolyte conformation and controlling calcite morphologies: Direct observation of the phase transition by atomic force microscopy
Stockholm University.
2008 (English)In: Journal of the American Chemical Society, ISSN 0002-7863, E-ISSN 1520-5126, Vol. 130, no 39, 13074-13078 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In the biomineralization process, the changes in conformation of organic matrix may be a widespread phenomenon. Investigation of the structural relationship between organic and inorganic materials is the main subject. The approach taken was to extract quantitative information of the variations in polyelectrolyte conformation during the mineralization process using atomic force microscopy. The results inter the evidence of the role of polyelectrolyte conformation in mineralization of calcium carbonate and the methods for understanding the principle that govern biomineralization.
