Current research interests

My current project of “The effect of fluoride on the mobility of economically relevant elements” focuses on the metal fluoride complex. Especially for the high-tech elements like Rare Earth Elements(REE) and High Field Strength Elements(HFSE), fluoride complex may play a big role in it. So we aim to find which elements can be moved effectively by fluoride complex. First of all, we will do some petrological and geochemical works to get a basic knowledge; then the F-bearing solution will be investigated by Hydrothermal Diamond Anvil Cells(HDAC) combined with Synchrotron X-Ray fluorescence(XRF). We will get the speciation and solubility of the targeted metals. Based on the previous results, we will construct a model to simulate the process of the metal mobility, and some refined works may be essential. We trust the achievements will be beneficial to the related area.
