Nacre biocrystal thermal behavior


The thermal behaviour of Pinctada margaritifera nacre was studied at different temperatures by means of thermal gravimetric, thermo-mechanical and Rock-Eval analyses. From the mechanical point of view nacre exhibited a complete reversible behaviour up to 230 °C. The bio-aragonite allotrope was seen to be as stable as the abiotic aragonite up to 470–500 °C. It was also evidenced that the organic phase was keeping cracking oxygen functions at temperatures as high as 650 °C. Nacre thermal behaviour could be described following four distinctive stages and discussed in comparison with previous data obtained in oxidative conditions.
