Information - GMPV36 Organic and inorganic mineral surface processes
Chemical reactions at interfaces influence and control most geochemical processes, and their consequences have an impact on a wide range of length scales. Mechanisms which can be studied on the nanoscale ultimately control processes such as the cycling of chemical elements by mineral weathering, metasomatic processes, interaction between mineral surfaces and inorganic and organic contaminants in water, crystal growth and dissolution mechanisms and the effect of adsorbents, as well as organic-inorganic interactions which lead to mineralisation. In this symposium we will explore experimental and computational methods, as well as the characterisation of natural mineral interfaces undergoing reaction by organic or inorganic agents, to lead to a better fundamental understanding of mineral surface processes. We especially welcome contributions which have the mineral surface as the focus, but relate to geochemical and biogeochemical processes in a wider perspective.
