The effect of sample mass, heating rate and partial pressure of carbon dioxide on TG, DTG and DTA curves for the decomposition
of some common carbonates has been investigated. These variables gave a marked effect, similar in magnitude for both DTG and
DTA. The effect of sample mass, or depth of undiluted sample, is shown to be due to an increase in the partial pressure of
carbon dioxide within the reacting powder. This effect is most pronounced in nitrogen but is much reduced in carbon dioxide.
Inert diluents have little effect on the curves since they do not increase the partial pressure of CO2. The first stage of the decomposition of dolomite (CaMg(CO3)2) varies with increasing partial pressure of carbon dioxide in an anomalous manner and hence the effects of these procedural
variables (except heating rate) are not similar to those observed for magnesite (MgCO3) and calcite (CaCO3). The second stage is, however, strongly dependent on these variables and behaves in a manner that would be predicted for
a sample of calcite diluted with magnesite.
In the present paper the thermal behaviour of Mg-carbonates and -silicates is reviewed and discussed, based on own DTA investigations and data from the literature. Mg-bearing minerals in soils and sediments offer informations about the palaeoenvironment and palaeoclimatology of sediments and soils and - thus - the study of their crystal chemical compositions by means of (differential) thermal analysis informs about environmental conditions of (sedimentary Mg-) mineral (trans-) formations. The paper stresses (1) the interrelations between decomposition temperatures of (Mg-) carbonates and substitution processes and is (2) concerned with the interdependence between the dehydroxylation behaviour of Mg-bearing sheet silicates and their crystal chemical composition.

Apatites are a large class of mineral compounds with the general formula M 10 (PO 4 ) 6 X 2 , where M is generally a divalent cation and X can be a hydroxyl, carbonate or a halide. They crystallise in the hexagonal

Pressureless sintering of CaCO3 was carried out, with Li2CO3 (from 0.5 to 8 wt%) as an additive, under different pressures of CO2. Densification occurs between 600 and 700°C. Sintering above the eutectic temperature (T>662°C) leads to the decomposition
of calcium carbonate and the materials become expanded. At 620° under 1 kPa of CO2, a relative density of 96% is reached. Li2CO3 enhances the densification process and grain growth of calcium carbonate. CO2 pressure slows down densification and grain growth kinetics. These results are explained by the influence of carbonate and
calcium ion vacancies on the sintering mechanisms.
