Methods to analyze metastable and microparticulate hydrated and hydrous iron sulfate minerals

Hyde, Brendt C.; King, Penelope; Dyar, M D; Spilde, Michael N.; Ali, Abdul-Mehdi S


We evaluate analytical methods for characterizing hydrated and hydrous iron sulfate minerals (HHIS) that are typically metastable in air or vacuum, commonly form micrometer-sized particles, and contain multi-valent and light elements (Fe2+, Fe3+, OH-, and H2O) that may be challenging to quantify. We synthesized or obtained HHIS-szomolnokite, melanterite, rhomboclase, schwertmannite, ferricopiapite, paracoquimbite, and jarosite-as well as Fe-oxides. These nominally pure samples were...[Show more]
