Title: Synthesis and structure of synthetically pure and deuterated amorphous (basic) calcium carbonates

Abstract

It is generally believed that H 2O and OH - are the key species stabilizing and controlling amorphous calcium carbonate “polyamorph” forms, and may in turn control the ultimate crystallization products during synthesis and in natural systems. Yet, the locations and hydrogen-bonding network of these species in ACC have never been measured directly using neutron diffraction. In this paper, we report a synthesis route that overcomes the existing challenges with respect to yield quantities and deuteration, both of which are critically necessary for high quality neutron studies.
