Reactions in which Calcium carbonate is involved

  • CaCO3 + SiO2 "950-1500^oC"--> CaSiO3 + CO2"|^"
  • {M}(OH)2 + H2{X} = {M}{X} + 2H2O , where M = Mg Ca Ba Sr Cu Zn; X = SO4 SO3 CO3
  • {M}CO3 + 2H{X} -> {M}{X}2 + CO2"|^" + H2O , where M = Ca Mg Ba Sr Cd Zn Be Mn Pb; X = F Cl Br I
  • {M}CO3 + H2{X} = {M}{X} + CO2"|^" + H2O , where M = Mg Ca Ba Sr Zn Cd Be Ni Mn; X = SO4
  • CaCO3 + H2S "900^oC"--> CaS + H2O + CO2
