Compositional zoning in Fe oxyhydroxides: An electron microprobe study

Abstract [en]

Compositional zoning in iron oxyhydroxides precipitated from mine drainage-contaminated groundwater was studied by electron microprobe (EMP) analysis. The observed zoning is characterized by variations in Al, Fe, S, and Si concentrations, with mean precipitate concentrations of ca. 56.0 wt.% Fe, 1.1 wt.% Al, 2.0 wt.% Si, and 0.5 wt.% S. The analyses indicate an inverse relationship between AI-Si concentrations and Fe-S concentrations in the Fe oxyhydroxides. The results and groundwater data from the field site suggest that the origin of compositional zoning in the Fe oxyhydroxides is controlled by both surface complexation reactions involving Al3+ and H4SiO4, which affect goethite formation kinetics, and the Al/Fe and Si/Fe molar ratios in solution.
