We are excited to announce a call for papers for a special issue of Geochemical Transactions in honor of Prof.
Donald Sparks: “Frontiers and Advances in Environmental Soil Chemistry”, Guest Edited by Young-Shin Jun, Mengqiang Zhu and Derek Peak.
Coverage includes theoretical, experimental, and modeling papers dealing with this subject area, as well as papers presenting observations of natural systems that stress major processes.
The journal also presents `letter'-type papers for rapid publication and a limited number of review-type papers on topics of particularly broad interest or current major controversy.
Two configurations each of monodentate and bidentate adsorbed chromate as well as an outer-sphere and a dissolved bichromate were simulated.
In addition to the 3-D periodic planewave DFT models, molecular clusters were extracted from the energy-minimized structures.Various techniques may yield different interpretive results.The Ore deposit geochemistry is one of the dominant research fields of the Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IGCAS).In this study, part of the “Frontiers and Advances in Environmental Soil Chemistry” collection in honouring the work of Prof.Donald Sparks, James Kubicki and colleagues, perform DFT calculations on a model of a ferrihydrite nanoparticle interacting with chromate in water.Invited papers and proposed submissions will highlight important challenges in environmental geochemistry and soil chemistry and will introduce current advances in these areas.For further information please read the full scope here.The predecessor of the State Key Laboratory of Ore Deposit Geochemistry (SKLODG) is the Key Laboratory of Ore Deposit Geochemistry Chinese Academy of Sciences (KLODGCAS) which was established in 1989 on the basis of the Division for Studying Ore Deposits in IGCAS.The SKLODG was approved to be constructed in 2006 and verified by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2009.Articles that simply replicate known knowledge or techniques while researching a local geochemical problem will normally be rejected without review Please see the Aims and Scope of the journal for full details.There are no page charges to publish in this journal.
