Porous calcite single crystals grown from a hydrogel medium

Abstract

This paper describes the internal structure of calcite (CaCO3) crystals grown in an agarose hydrogel and demonstrates that the gel-grown calcite crystals, like biogenic calcite crystals, incorporate the organic matrix, resulting in internal structures with pores on the order of 100's of nanometers.
