Chemical-garden formation, morphology, and composition. I. Effect of the nature of the cations.

Abstract

We have grown chemical gardens in different sodium silicate solutions from several metal-ion salts--calcium chloride, manganese chloride, cobalt chloride, and nickel sulfate--with cations from period 4 of the periodic table. We have studied their formation process using photography, examined the morphologies produced using scanning electron microscopy (SEM… (More)
