CaCO3 forms slower in saline water than previously estimated

Research from Washington University in St. Louis’ McKelvey School of Engineering finds overestimation may be due to a lack of consideration of the effects of kinetic factors

According to new research from Washington University in St. Louis’ McKelvey School of Engineering, the speed at which calcium carbonate (CaCO3) forms in saline water may be slower than previously estimated. The overestimation may be due to a lack of consideration of the effects of kinetics, the research found.
