Calcium Oxide Micron Powder
Calcium oxide (CaO) is a good example of naturally abundant earth metal oxides. CaO micron powders have spherical or faceted high surface area, also they are magnetic micro-particles. Calcium oxide (CaO), commonly known as burnt lime or quicklime, is an alkaline earth metal oxide. Calcium is a Block S, Group 2, Period 4 element, while oxygen is a Block P, Period 2 element. CaO micron powders possess excellent antimicrobial potential and capability to inactivate microbial endotoxin. Due to CaO powder’s unique structural and optical properties, they can be used as a potential drug delivery agent, in photodynamic therapy (PDT), photo-thermal therapy (PTT), and synaphic delivery of chemotherapeutic agents. Also, due to its good porosity, it finds its part in storage systems and its biocompatibility earns it a good value in drug delivery and gene transfection. Calcium Oxide (CaO) micron powders are commonly used in several applications such as in catalysis, adsorption, water purification and also as antibacterial agents.
