The induction period, tind, of CaCO3 precipitated from an aqueous CaCl2–Na2CO3 solution is investigated both experimentally and theoretically. The tind of primary nucleation is measured by applying a conductivity method and estimated by using the rapid coagulation theory. By using a novel data acquisition system in the experiment, tind can be easily estimated from the desupersaturation curve, which is a plot of solution conductivity against time. The desupersaturation curves obtained at various… CONTINUE READING
