Abstract [en]

The main objective of the present study is to develop a system to synthesize stable amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) particles with controlled particle size in the range of nanometers by the use of miniemulsion technique and to understand the 'facilitated transport mechanism'. The surfactant adsorption can be explained by the change in solubility of CaCO3 and surfactant in aqueous solution. This article covers our experimental observations and the possible reaction mechanisms.
