An Experimental Study of Copper(I)-Chloride and Copper(I)-Acetate Complexing in Hydrothermal Solutions between 50oC and 250oC and Vapor-Saturated Pressure

Liu, WeiHua; McPhail, Derry; Brugger, Joel


The transport of copper is affected by complexing with ligands such as chloride, bisulphide and acetate. Many copper deposits are formed from hydrothermal waters and brines and in order to understand their formation we need thermodynamic properties of aqueous copper species. The solubility of cuprite experiments in pH-buffered acetate and chloride solutions was determined at 50°C, 150°C and 250°C and water vapor saturated pressures. Chloride and acetate concentrations were varied using NaCl...[Show more]
