Donners, JJJM and Heywood, BR and Meijer, EW and Nolte, RJM and Roman, C and Schenning, APHJ and Sommerdijk, NAJM, Amorphous calcium carbonate stabilised by poly(propylene imine) dendrimers, Chemical Communications, (19) pp. 1937-1938. ISSN 1359-7345 (2000) [Refereed Article]


In the presence of octadecylamine, poly(propylene imine) dendrimers modified with long alkyl chains self-assemble to form well-defined aggregates that stabilise for periods exceeding 14 days the normally unstable amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) which persists in competition with the thermodynamic product, calcite.
