Chemical Equilibrium

  • Naotatsu Shikazono


Using chemica l equilibrium model, stability fields of common silicate minerals are shown on activity diagram and solubilities of minerals as functions of pH , gaseous fugacity and oxidation -reduction potential. It is shown that the chemical composition of ground water reacting with silicates are interpreted based on inverse mass balance model and natural aqueous solutions (ground water, hydrothermal solution) are also controlled by the partitioning of elements between aqueous solution and surface of mineral (Rayleigh fractionation ).
