Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Garry Buchko
Biomineralization is the process used by living organism to produce minerals with properties not always found in their equivalent inorganically produced counterparts. In vertebrates, mineralized tissues such as bone, cementum, dentin and enamel all...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

We propose to use NMR in combination with computational modeling, to study the conversion of soluble tetrahedral aluminum (Al) species to octahedrally coordinated Al-bearing mineral precipitates under strongly basic conditions typical of high-level...

Principal Investigator: John Loring
The manner in which soil organic carbon (SOC) binds to and reacts with mineral surfaces affects SOC (bio)degradation, SOC mobility, soil wettability, mineral dissolution, and the bioavailability of essential elements and contaminants. While SOC-...
