Abstract: Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) is a material used in papermaking to improve paper’s properties (brightness, strength, opacity) and this project was about making PCC using sonochemical and nanotechnological synthesis routes at University of Guelph from calcium acetate. The main objective was obtaining PCC in the aragonite polymorph to future tests in papermaking. The morphological property of the PCC was determined by X-Ray Diffraction (XDR) at the University of Toronto.
