Point of zero charge of weathered forsterite

Chemical Geology
By:  and 



The point of zero charge of forsterite shifts from an estimated 8.9 for the unaltered mineral to 8.4 and 8.0, respectively, after being weathered artificially for 1 h and 4 h. These results corroborate the presence of magnesium-deficient surfaces on the weathered minerals, also indicated by chemical analyses of the solutions. H+ and OH- are shown to be potential-determining ions in this system. ?? 1973.
