Engineering Crystals for Contaminant Treatment: Tales of manganese oxides and calcium silicates

The formation of crystalline solids and their ability to form solid solutions is a process that can be engineered to handle environmental problems regarding contamination. For example, manganese oxide precipitation has been used as a method of removing contaminants through co-precipitation and sorption at acid mine drainage sites. In addition to contaminant removal, precipitation can also be used to seal up points of leakage in areas where contaminants are stored. For instance, in subsurface reservoirs where CO2 is stored, the injection and reaction of calcium silicates with CO2 can be used as an effective method of sealing up leakages in a wellbore to prevent the release of CO2 out of the reservoir into potable water sources. For these applications of treating environmental contamination, the crystal structure of the precipitating solids play a key role in their effectiveness at contaminant removal or containment.
