      CaCO3 was precipitated in ethanol byusing calcium chloride, ammonium carbonate and an ionic liquid (IL). With Cl-based ILs, calcite microcubes, microframes, microboxes, nanocubes and nanocorn-like objects were obtained. With BF4-based ILs, calcite and fluorite nanostructured microspheres, nanostructured calla-lily-like and ice-cream-ball-like micro-objects were produced.
