Acicular type aragonite precipitated calcium carbonate was synthesized by carbonation reaction of $Ca(OH)_2$ slurry and $CO_2$ gas. As increasing the initial concentration of $Mg^{2+}$ ion, calcite crystal phase substantially decreased while that of aragonite crystal phase increased. According to XRD and EDS analysis, it was found that the addition of $MgCl_2$ induced the $Mg^{2+}$ ion to substitute in $Ca^{2+}$ ion site of calcite lattice then the unstabled calcite structure be resolved, consequently the growth of calcite structure is interrupted while the growth of aragonite structure is expedited.
Key words: Precipitated calcium carbonate, Aragonite, Carbonation process, Magnesium ion
