  • The rates of dissolution of calcitic Carrara marble have been reported to be significantly reduced in alkaline pH (pH 8.25) at 25 degrees C in the presence of (1-hydroxyethylidene)-1,1 diphosphonic acid (HEDP). The adsorption takes place at the calcite/water interface at the double layer through the interaction of charged surface species with the charged solution species of the adsorbate. The present work focused on obtaining a better understanding of the interaction of the calcite surface with… CONTINUE READING
