Königsberger, L.C., Königsberger, E., Hefter, G. and May, P.M. (2012) Solubility of metal oxides and hydroxides in alkaline solutions. In: 15th International Symposium on Solubility Phenomena and Related Equilibrium Processes, 23 - 27 July, Xining, China

Abstract

Reliable solubility data for oxides and hydroxides of heavy metals in alkaline solutions are relevant to a number of industrial and geochemical processes, including the production of high-purity alumina in the Bayer process, the formation of ores from geothermal solutions at high pH, hydrometallurgical leaching processes for the extraction of metal values from ores and plant residues, and the storage and processing of certain types of radioactive waste.

Recent results obtained for various systems will be reported, including experimental and modelling aspects. A new facility for the storage, handling and processing of solubility data will be outlined.
