The role of microbial sulfate reduction in calcium carbonate polymorph selection

Abstract:

Microbial sulfate reduction is a dominant metabolism in many marine sedimentary environments. The influence of this metabolism on the kinetics of CaCO3 growth, as well as the dominant polymorphs precipitated, is poorly understood. To investigate the role of microbial metabolism on CaCO3 precipitation and polymorph selection, we conducted growth experiments with the sulfate reducing bacteria (D. bizertensis) in media with varying Mg/Ca and different seeding materials (calcite and kaolinite).
