Discrepancies between the mean force potential for the Ca2+–Cl- ion pair in water obtained by Dang and Smith and in our paper [Guàrdia et al., J. Chem. Phys. 99, 4229 (1993)] are attributed to the different interatomic potentials used for its calculation. Despite their differences both interaction models reproduce the experimental structural data now available. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.

    Direct pulsed spark discharge treatment was found to be able to induce the precipitation of calcium ions in supersaturated hard water (Yang et al. in Water Res 44:3659, 2010). The present study investigated possible pathways for the plasma-induced precipitation. Both UV and reactive species were...
