Effect of some surfactants on SO2-marble reaction
In the polluted atmosphere, sulphur dioxide (SO2) reacts with calcite (CaCO3) in marble producing calcium sulphite hemihydrate (CaSO3·0.5 H2O) and gypsum (CaSO4·2H2O). Gypsum develops crust at rain-sheltered surfaces and ...
Quantification of CaCO3-CaSO3·0.5H 2O-CaSO4·2H2O mixtures by FTIR analysis and its ANN model
A new quantitative analysis method for mixtures of calcium carbonate (CaCO3), calcium sulphite hemihydrate (CaSO 3·1/2H2O) and gypsum (CaSO 4·2H2O) by FTIR spectroscopy is developed. The method involves the FTIR analysis ...
