Lattice-theory of alkaline earth carbonates

Part III. Lattice-Energy of the crystals of calcite and its thermo-chemical applications
  • B. Y. Oke


The lattice-energy of the crystals of calcite is calculated; and the value ofn the index of the repulsive forces is determined with the help of the compressibility measurements. The value of the lattice-energy is applied to a thermo-chemical cyclic process.
