  • Solubility of stibnite (Sb{sub 2}S{sub 3}) was measured in aqueous hydrogen sulfide solutions as a function of pH and total free sulfur (TFS) concentrations at 25, 90, 200, 275, and 350{degree}C and at saturated vapor pressures. At 25 and 90{degree}C and TFS {approx} 0.01 molal solubility is controlled by the thioantimonite complexes H{sub 2}Sb{sub 2}S{sup 0}{sub 4}, Hsb{sub 2}S{sub 4}{sup {minus}}, Sb{sub 2}S{sup 2{minus}}{sub 4}. At higher temperatures the hydroxothioantimonite complex Sb{sub 2}S{sub 2}(OH){sup 0}{sub 2} becomes dominant. Polymerization due to condensation reactions yields long chains made up of trigonal-pyramidal SbS{sub 3}-groups. Equilibrium constants were derived for the dimers. Themore » transition from thioantimonites to the hydroxothioantimonite species at approximately 120{degree}C is endothermic and is entirely driven by a gain in entropy. Stibnite solubility calculated for some geothermal fluids indicate that these fluids are undersaturated in Sb if stibnite is the solid equilibrium phase. At high temperatures (> 100{degree}C) precipitation of stibnite from ore fluids can occur in response to conductive cooling, while at low temperatures, where thioantimonites dominate, acidification of the fluid is the more likely mechanism. Precipitation of stibnite from fluids containing hydroxothioantimonite consumes H{sub 2}S and may thus trigger precipitation of other metals carried as sulfide complexes, e.g. Au(HS){sup {minus}}{sub 2}.« less
  • Phase equilibrium properties of mixtures at high pressures are required for practical use such as in the design and operation of separation equipment in the petroleum natural gas, and related industries. Vapor-liquid equilibria and saturated densities for carbon dioxide + 1-butanol at high pressures were measured at 313.15 K including in the vicinity of the critical region with the static-circulation apparatus. The present experimental vapor-liquid equilibrium results significantly differ from the values reported by King et al., but agree with those of Jennings et al. The results were correlated with various equations of state.
  • A conductivity probe and circuit were developed to measure salinities in sodium chloride salt-gradient solar ponds. A point-electrode salinometer design was chosen to give spatial resolution approximately 0.039 in. (1 mm). Such high spatial resolution was necessary to study the behavior of thermohaline columns in the vicinity of convective/conductive zone interfaces. The point-electrode conductivity instrument was designed for use in up to 25% (by weight) salinities with immersion times on the order of magnitude of 0.1 year or longer. Drift in the instrument, caused principally by changes in the surface condition of the platinum probe tip and reflected by changesmore » in the probe cell constant, required periodic in situ calibration against the measured specific gravity of withdrawn fluid samples.« less
