Synergistic use of siderophores and weak organic ligands during zinc transport in the rhizosphere controlled by pH and ion strength gradients

published in Scientific Reports is explaining how weak and strong ligands interact … Citrate (Cit) and Deferoxamine B (DFOB) are two important organic ligands coexisting in soils with distinct different affinities for metal ions. It has been theorized that siderophores and weak organic ligands play a synergistic role during the transport of micronutrients in the… Read More »

How to determine oxidation rates and quantum yields during the photocatalytic oxidation of As (III) over TiO2

published in Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology A: Chemistry, 113628 The determination of reaction rates for the photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) of arsenite (As(III)) using TiO2 under UV radiation is challenging due to the numerous experimental processes. This includes chemical processes running simultaneously with PCO (e.g. adsorption of arsenic species, direct UV photolysis of As(III)) and the analytical approach used… Read More »

Anna has Japan day – so Heidi made some wonderful sushi ….. i am hungry

Teaching has started …. with new videos

The new lab course has started where we use new videos to introduce the student to experiment before he/she/them go into the lab – check out the videos in the teaching section

ThellierCoolPy: A Cooling-Rate Correction Tool for Paleointensity Data

Ancient magnetic field intensity estimates from rocks, can provide information about the early habitability of the Earth and formation of the Solar System. Ancient magnetic field intensities are recovered from rocks, by replicating the magnetic remanence acquisition process which occurs in nature in the laboratory. In nature, this magnetic remanence is acquired by cooling rocks… Read More »

Welcome to Evelyn in our lab

Evelyn Baker is a PhD candidate in Adrian Muxworthys Natural Magnetism group. Evelyn’s research investigates how magnetic minerals record external magnetic fields during grain growth processes. With a particular focus on determining the strength of the recorded magnetic field from the rocks magnetisation. She conducts her magnetic mineral synthesis experiments with us.

Proposal assessment for Swedish Mining Innovation

I have been invited to sit on the proposal evaluation panel for the Swedish Mining Innovation awards for 2021. It is fascinating to read so many research ideas and get insights into state of the art mining innovation
