Distribution of a two component electrolyte mixture between the model adsorbent and a bulk aqueous electrolyte solution was studied using the replica Ornstein-Zernike theory and the grand canonical Monte Carlo method. The electrolyte components were modelled to mimic the HCl/NaCl and HCl/CaCl_2 mixtures, respectively. The matrix, invaded by the primitive model electrolyte mixture, was formed from monovalent negatively charged spherical obstacles. The solution was treated as a continuous…

Confinement generates single-crystal aragonite rods at room temperature
Calcium carbonate precipitation in submicron pores is shown to be promoted in confinement and that pure aragonite crystallizes in nanoscale pores in the absence of any additives, suggesting that organisms may exploit confinement effects to control polymorph.
