Calcium carbonate is a naturally occurring chemical compound with molecular formula as CaCO3. More than 4% of the earth’s crust is comprised of calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is available as aragonite, calcite and dolomite, which are its natural form. The other common natural forms of calcium carbonate are marble, limestone and chalk, which are formed in millions of years by sedimentation of shells of fossilized corals, shellfish and snails. Chemically all these three forms are identical but are different in whiteness, thickness, purity and homogeneity. Calcium carbonate is one of the most versatile and useful material known to the mankind because of its various applications. Calcium carbonate used for industrial applications can be extracted by mining and quarrying. Pure form of calcium carbonate is required for pharmaceutical and food applications, which can be prepared with a pure quarried source such as marble. Ultrafine calcium carbonate is highly porous and has high surface area-volume ratio, it is non-toxic as well as possess biocompatibility with body fluids, which makes its applications more versatile. Various commercial grades of calcium carbonate are being developed, which meet different technical demands by optimization of properties such as fineness, color and distribution of its particles of different sizes.
