Traditionally called slaked lime, calcium hydroxide, slack lime or pickling lime , is a chemical compound Ca(OH)2. It is a colorless crystal or white powder, and is obtained when calcium oxide (called lime or quicklime) is mixed, or slaked with water. It can also be precipitated by mixing an aqueous solution of calcium chloride.
When heated the partial of water in equilibrium with calcium hydroxide reaches 101kPa and decomposes into calcium oxide and water.

More formally known as calcium oxide (CaO), is a caustic alkaline substance which is produced by heating limestone in specially designed kiln.
Is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the mineral calcite (calcium carbonate: CaCO3). Often contains variable amounts of silica in the form of chert and/or flint, as well as varying of clay, silt and sand as disseminations, nodules, or layers within the rock.
Also called as garden lime or liming soil, is a soil additive made from pulverized limestone. The primary active component is calcium carbonate. Additional chemicals vary depending on the mineral source and may include calcium oxide, magnesium oxide and magnesium carbonate.
