Zeta potential measurements of rare earth element enriched apatite (NERC grant NE/M011429/1)
Zeta potential measurements of rare earth element enriched apatite from Jacupiranga, Brazil under water and collector conditions. Zeta potential measurements can be used to indicate the surface behaviour of a mineral under different reagent conditions. Mineral surface behaviour is important in processing and extracting minerals from their host ore, which can be energy intensive. Apatite is a phosphate mineral which can become enriched with rare earth elements. Rare earth elements are important in a wide range of products from iPhones to wind turbines.
Zeta potential measurements were conducted on a Microtrac Stabino Particle Charge mapping surface chemistry device at Colorado School of Mines, USA. For more details please see Owens et al., 2019. Advances in Colloid and Interface Science.
