The present study analyses transformation pathways of pristine and thermally treated porous limestone and dense marble surfaces by means of time-resolved streaming current and potential measurements coupled with scanning electron microscopy and in-situ X-ray diffraction. The results reveal that under nonequilibrium conditions the zeta potential (ζ) of natural carbonates may exhibit positive and negative signs and ζ drifts in opposite directions. Sample surface roughness influences ζ because it contributes to dissolution, as observed particularly in the initial period of time-resolved measurements. Thermal treatment causes a temporary charge reversal from negative to positive. The reactivity of calcium hydroxide on calcite surfaces governs the net electrokinetic potential and isoelectric point (IEPpH), even at low surface coverage, as cross-validated by in-situ XRD. It was also found that pore conductivity may lead to ~90% underestimation of ζ when assessed by streaming potential. SEM studies revealed micro cracks inducement on marble after thermal treatment, which can result in underestimation of ζ up to the same extent as for the porous limestone. ... mehr
