In vitro synthesis and stabilization of amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) nanoparticles within liposomes

Author affiliations

Abstract

We show that amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) can be synthesized in phospholipid bilayer vesicles (liposomes). Liposome-encapsulated ACC nanoparticles are stable against aggregation, do not crystallize for at least 20 h, and are ideally suited to investigate the influence of lipid chemistry, particle size, and soluble additives on ACC in situ.
