(2015) Formation of low-T hydrated silicates in modern microbialites from Mexico and implications for microbial fossilization. Microbialites are organo-sedimentary rocks found in abundance throughout the geological record back to ∼3.5 Ga. Interpretations of the biological and environmental conditions under which they formed rely on comparisons with modern(More)
1 Carboxylic acid sorption on synthetic clays in marine water: in vitro experiments and implications for organo-clay behaviour under marine conditions ABSTRACT In order to investigate the role of clay minerals in organic matter preservation, the fixation of pure organic compounds on two synthetic low-and high-charge saponites was investigated in laboratory(More)
Defects and fluctuations dominate both static and dynamical properties of systems in the condensed phase. In this work, we focus on three such examples. Firstly, we model the effect of proton fluctuations on the rate of electron transfer in the condensed phase through an electron donor-acceptor assembly linked via an H-bonding bridge. The model suggests(More)
