Chemical-garden formation, morphology, and composition. I. Effect of the nature of the cations
We have grown chemical gardens in different sodium silicate solutions from several metal-ion salts-calcium chloride, manganese chloride, cobalt chloride, and nickel sulfate-with cations from period 4 of the periodic table. ...
Chemical-garden formation, morphology, and composition. II. Chemical gardens in microgravity
We studied the growth of metal-ion silicate chemical gardens under Earth gravity (1 g) and microgravity (μg) conditions. Identical sets of reaction chambers from an automated system (the Silicate Garden Habitat or SGHab) ...
