Reaction rates and dissolution mechanisms of quartz as a function of pH.

Abstract

In this computational study, we present the dissolution rates for quartz as a function of pH at 298 K. At any given pH, the dissolution of the quartz surface depends on the distribution of protonated, deprotonated, or neutral species. The dissolution mechanism for each of these three species was investigated by ab initio electronic structure calculations to… (More)
