Characterizing the redox properties of Fe (oxyhydr)oxides and clay minerals
Iron-bearing clay minerals are important redox buffers in the subsurface that can affect the biogeochemical cycling of elements and the fate, transport, and toxicity of pollutants.
To assess the role that structural Fe in clay minerals plays in redox reactions in pristine and contaminated environments, we are developing electrochemistry-based approaches to derive thermodynamic parameters of such mineral phases.
