Sulfide minerals contain sulphur in a large variety of coordination environments. Consequently, the S 2p XPS of various mineral surface states undergo different shifts in binding energy (BE) relative to the bulk, depending on the charge distribution on the surface. This in turn depends on the number, type and position of the atoms on the fracture surface… CONTINUE READING
