Abstract In order to understand the effects of carboxylic ligands on magnesite growth at low hydrothermal conditions, the growth processes on the (1 0 4) surface have been investigated using hydrothermal atomic force microscopy (HAFM). Experiments were performed with various concentrations of oxalate, citrate and EDTA at T  = 100 °C and a pH value of about 8. We show that the ligands influence magnesite growth in different manners. At concentrations of 1–10 mM, citrate and oxalate both exert a… CONTINUE READING
