Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) precipitated particles present huge applications in drug delivery systems because their characteristics (such as size distribution, crystalline phase and specific surface area) can be precisely tailored during the synthesis. Besides this, most of the processing methods present competitive costs and produce highly biocompatible materials. This work reviewed briefly some of the many chemical and biological synthesis methods for CaCO3 nano-microparticles as well as their
