To study strontium (Sr) incorporation into calcium oxalates (weddellite and whewellite), calcium-strontium oxalate solid solutions (Ca,Sr)[C2O4]∙nH2O (n = 1, 2) are synthesized and studied by a complex of methods: powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy. Two series of solid solutions, isomorphous (Ca,Sr)[C2O4]·(2.5 − x)H2O) (space group I4/m) and isodimorphous Ca[C2O4]·H2O(sp.gr. P21/c)–Sr[C2O4]·H2O(sp.gr. P 1 - ), are experimentally detected. The morphogenetic regularities of their crystallization are revealed. The factors controlling this process are discussed. View Full-Text
