Moore, Leslie, Hopwood, Jeremy D. and Davey, Roger J. (2004) Unusual morphological and microstructural features of synthetic calcite induced by acrylate/styrene copolymers. Journal of Crystal Growth, 261 (1). pp. 93-98. ISSN 0022-0248

Crystallisation of calcite has been induced at the air–water interface by added water-soluble acrylate-based copolymers. Two unusual calcite morphologies are reported, one c-axis needles the other spherical particles. Both appear to comprise submicron crystallites.
