The effect of pressure and temperature on aluminium hydrolysis: Implications to trace metal scavenging in natural waters
MetadataShow full item record
Removal of aluminium through precipitation/scavenging in natural waters was evaluated based on its hydrolysis at different temperatures and pressures. In general, pH for the occurrence of cation hydrolysis was lowered with hike in temperature which further decreased with increase in pressure. Four kinds of natural water systems with varied pH, temperature and pressure were studied. Al removal seems to be more favoured in river and seawater at low pressures, that is not favoured in the deep oceans; that could have similar implications to the scavenging of other metal ions in natural waters.
