CaCO3 + Heat → CaO + CO2

Chemical name : Calcium Oxide

Chemical formula : CaO

Calcium oxide (CaO), generally known as burnt lime or quicklime, is a widely used chemical compound in many industries. It is a white, alkaline, and crystalline solid. Quicklime is produced by the thermal dissociation of limestone, a calcium carbonate mineral (CaCO3) by heating it to a high temperature (about 1,100°c) to separate and drive off the carbon dioxide (CO2) from the carbonate (CO3) molecule, leaving calcium oxide (CaO). This is called calcinations or burning. It is the best, cheapest catalyst and common chemical for various useful industrial for its chemical reactions purposes.
