The role of the 'ideal' in political philosophy is currently much discussed. These debates cast useful light on Mill's self-designation as 'under the general designation of Socialist'. Considering Mill's assessment of potential property-relations on... Read More

Acceleration of dolomitization by zinc in saline waters (2019)
Journal Article
Vandeginste, V., Snell, O., Hall, M. R., Steer, E., & Vandeginste, A. (2019). Acceleration of dolomitization by zinc in saline waters. Nature Communications, 10, 1-8. doi:10.1038/s41467-019-09870-y

Dolomite (CaMg(CO3)2) plays a key role in the global carbon cycle. Yet, the chemical mechanisms that catalyze its formation remain an enigma. Here, using batch reactor experiments, we demonstrate an unexpected acceleration of dolomite formation by zi... Read More
