We measured the molybdenum isotope compositions (δ(98)Mo) of well-dated sediment cores from two lakes in eastern Canada in an effort to distinguish between natural and anthropogenic contributions to these freshwater aquatic systems. Previously, Chappaz et al. (1) ascribed pronounced 20th-century Mo concentration enrichments in these lakes to anthropogenic(More)
Metal speciation is important for understanding the toxicity of metals in aquatic systems, and can be predicted for mixtures of metals in presence of dissolved organic matter (DOM) with thermodynamic models such as WHAM VI. The influence of the DOM source (quality) has been demonstrated, but is presently neglected in predicting Cu activity (WHAM VI). Here(More)
The geochemical behavior of molybdenum (Mo) in the oceans is closely linked to the presence of sulfide species in anoxic environments, where Fe availability may play a key role in the Mo scavenging. Here, we show that Mo(VI) is reduced in the presence of particulate organic matter (represented by sulfate-reducing bacteria). Molybdenum was immobilized at the(More)
Effects of hydrologic variability on reservoir biogeochemistry are relatively unknown, particularly for less studied metals like vanadium (V). Further, few studies have investigated the fate and effects of sediment-associated V to aquatic organisms in hydrologically variable systems. Our primary objective was to assess effects of hydrologic manipulation on(More)
By using a steric approach, it is possible to design templates matching closely with an inorganic framework. Herein, the design, synthesis and successful application of several di(azacrown ether) templates to direct the formation of EMC-1 zeolite (FAU-type) are reported. Following a high throughput experiment design, the synthesis gel composition was(More)
