Summary of the technology

New Methodology to Control Calcium Carbonate Morphology and Material State
Project ID : 6-2018-4599

Description of the technology

Background

The ability to control the shape, size and crystalline state of CaCO3 is significant for several industries including:

  • Powder additives- improved flow properties (spherical shape versus irregular) of ink material, rubber filler, and tablet fillers
  • Additives to polymers and plastic improve thermal properties (amorphous material versus crystals)
  • Usage of spheres as template material for drug delivery layer-by-layer methods, simple template for removal.
  • Possibly usage in cosmetics for color or texture improvement
  • Nutrition additive- Potentially has improves bio-absorption (small amorphous nanoparticle compared to the commonly used micro crystals).
