  • anhydrous
  • The most common magnesium carbonate forms are the anhydrous salt called magnesite (MgCO3) and the di, tri, and pentahydrates known as barringtonite (MgCO3·2 H2O), nesquehonite (MgCO3·3 H2O), and lansfordite (MgCO3·5 H2O), respectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • Evaporites
  • Established in 1979, the international journal Carbonates and Evaporites provides a forum for the exchange of concepts, research and applications on all aspects of carbonate and evaporite geology. (springer.com)
  • Carbonates and Evaporites is an international scientific journal published 4 times a year by Springer and provides a forum for the exchange of concepts, research and applications on all aspects of carbonate and evaporite geology. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chemistry
  • The great variability with respect to geological setting, climatic environment, water chemistry, and biological activity limits generalizations about mechanisms of carbonate sedimentation. (springer.com)
  • manufacture
  • Carbonates are widely used in industry, e.g. in iron smelting, as a raw material for Portland cement and lime manufacture, in the composition of ceramic glazes, and more. (wikipedia.org)
  • reagent
  • It is reduced with formaldehyde, producing silver free of alkali metals: Ag2CO3 + CH2O → 2 Ag + 2 CO2 + H2 Silver carbonate is used as a reagent in organic synthesis such as the Koenigs-Knorr reaction. (wikipedia.org)
  • concentrations
  • As a food additive magnesium carbonate is known as E504, for which the only known side effect is that it may work as a laxative in high concentrations. (wikipedia.org)
  • humid
  • Two distinctly different geological settings can be recognized: (1) carbonate and evaporite deposition in brine lakes or on playas in arid regions (see Chap. 8, this volume), and (2) carbonate sedimentation in fresh- and brackish-water lakes in humid regions. (springer.com)
