The thermodynamics of iron and magnesium partitioning between olivine and liquid: criteria for assessing and predicting equilibrium in natural and experimental systems
The equations for the chemical potentials of fayalite and forsterite components in olivine and liquid may be used to derive a thermodynamic expression for the exchange coefficient %Expand

An experimental study of element partitioning between magnetite, clinopyroxene and iron-bearing silicate liquids with particular emphasis on vanadium
Abstract. Mineral-melt partition coefficients of vanadium and a series of divalent trace elements (Ni, Co, Mn, Sr) have been determined for ferrobasaltic bulk compositions at one atmosphere.Expand

A new experimental technique for extracting liquids from peridotite at very low degrees of melting: application to partial melting of depleted peridotite
A new technique that allows extraction of liquids from peridotite at degrees of melting φ as low as 0.2 wt% is presented. Microfractures that formed in the graphite sample container at the beginningExpand

Viscosity, fragility, and configurational entropy of melts along the join SiO2-NaAlSiO4
Abstract Viscosities of fourteen melts close to the join SiO2-NaAlO2 were measured in the range 1-1012 Pa·s (700-1650 °C) using a combination of concentric cylinder and micropenetration techniques.Expand

Experimental quantification of the fractionation of Fe isotopes during metal segregation from a silicate melt
Abstract Fractionation of Fe isotopes between a silicate melt and metallic alloys has been quantified experimentally at 1500 °C. The effects of oxygen fugacity and run duration have been investigatedExpand
