Free atmospheric phosphine concentrations and fluxes in different wetland ecosystems, China.
It is concluded that vegetation speeds up the liberation of PH(3) from soils, while water coverage might function as a diffusion barrier from soils or sediments to the atmosphere.
High–resolution re–investigation of the ν2 and ν4 bending bands of phosphine (PH3)
Abstract High resolution infrared spectra of PH 3 were recorded with a Bruker IFS125 HR Fourier transform infrared spectrometer at an optical resolution of 0.0025 cm − 1 and analyzed in the region of
Phosphine on Venus Cannot Be Explained by Conventional Processes.
This work thoroughly explores the potential pathways of formation of phosphine in a venusian environment, including in the planet's atmosphere, cloud and haze layers, surface, and subsurface, and provides a template for investigation of phosphines as a biosignature on other worlds.
Sensing ability of 2D Al2C monolayer toward toxic pnictogen hydrides: A first-principles perspective
Abstract In this study, the performance of a two-dimensional Al2C monolayer as an adsorptive medium and material sensor for four harmful pnictogen hydride gas molecules viz. NH3, PH3, AsH3, and SbH3
Ariel – a window to the origin of life on early earth?
Parts of prebiotic chemistry that will help in formulating future observational and data interpretation strategies for the Ariel mission are discussed, intended to open a discussion and motivate future detailed laboratory studies of pre biotic processes on young exoplanets and their chemical signatures.
Global phosphorus dynamics in terms of phosphine
Since the detection of phosphine in the wastewater treatment plants in 1988, more and more investigations revealed that phosphine is closely related to ecological activities on a global scale. Here,
Differential and Integral Cross Sections of Electron Elastic Scattering by PH3 Molecule in the Energy Ranging from 10 eV up to 20 keV
Differential and integral cross sections for electron elastic scattering by phosphine molecule at the incident energies ranging from 10 eV up to 20 keV are calculated using the well known partial
New environmental model for thermodynamic ecology of biological phosphine production.
This paper shows that, in specific environments, the combined action of phosphate reducing and phosphite disproportionating bacteria can produce phosphine, and describes how the phosphate chemistry in an environmental niche is coupled to phosphite generation in ground water, which in turn is driven by a specific microbial ecology.
The Al, Ga and Sc dopants effect on the adsorption performance of B12N12 nanocluster toward pnictogen hydrides
Abstract A systematic exploration using DFT calculations was carried out to investigate the interaction between pnictogen hydrides (NH3, PH3, and AsH3) with pristine and doped B12N12 clusters.
DFT investigation of O2 and PH3 adsorptions on group 8B metal˗doped boron nitride nanotubes
The adsorptions of O 2 and PH 3 molecules on boron nitride nanotube (BNNT) with and without the doping of group 8B metals (TM) i.e. Fe, Ru, Os, Co, Rh, Ir, Ni, Pd, and Pt were investigated using a


Phosphine from Harbor surface sediments
Evidence for phosphine production and emission from Louisiana and Florida marsh soils
Abstract A diffusion chamber and solid adsorbent preconcentration technique followed by thermal desorption and gas chromatography were developed for quantifying phosphine production and emission from
Phosphine in the fluvial and marine hydrosphere
Abstract Phosphine (PH 3 ) has been found in bottom waters and surface and subsurface sediments of Hamburg Harbour (a freshwater area adjacent to the River Elbe), and of the German Bight
14 The Phosphorus Cycle
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the phosphorus cycle. Phosphorus is one of the most important elements on Earth. It participates in or controls many of the biogeochemical processes occurring
4 Modeling Biogeochemical Cycles
Publisher Summary This chapter introduces and defines the basic concepts used in the description and modeling of biogeochemical cycles. The chapter describes some definitions of reservoir models and
Detection of phosphine: new aspects of the phosphorus cycle in the hydrosphere
The role of phosphorus in limiting organic matter production and in causing eutrophication has been in the forefront of hydrobiological research during the past 30–50 yr1–7. Comparing the cycles of
Evidence for the climatic role of marine biogenic sulphur
Oceanic dimethylsulphide (DMS) emissions and atmospheric aerosol particle populations (condensation nuclei, CN), resolved by latitude and season, appear to be directly correlated, in that CN, as
Observation of the nu-squared band of PH3 in the atmosphere of Saturn
Observation of the $nu$$sub 2$ band of PH$sub 3$ in the Saturnian atmosphere represents the first positive identification of this compound in the planet. The observed spectrum is consistent with line
