Manifestation of a Ricci scalar like a matter field as well as a geometrical field, at high energy, has been noted earlier. Here, its interaction with another scalar field is considered in four-dimensional curved space-time. This interaction leads to the production of a large number of pairs of spinless particle-antiparticles due to expansion of the early universe in the vacuum state (provided by the temperature dependent Coleman-Weinberg like potential for the Ricci field), where spontaneous symmetry breaking takes place.
