What is it about?
To remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, to combat climate change, it will be necessary to store large amounts underground. This paper shows how individual atomic constituents of common minerals impact on the types of compounds formed.

Why is it important?
The information within this paper is important input for reactive-transport modelling (computer simulations of carbon dioxide storage processes). Furthermore the synthesis procedure for model surfaces could be of use in other areas where well controlled surface chemistry is required.
