Hydrothermal Reactions of Organic Compounds in the Presence of Minerals: A Study of Carboxylic Acids
|Abstract||Carboxylic acids are an abundant and reactive species present throughout our solar system. The reactions of carboxylic acids can shape the organic abundances within oil field brines, carbonaceous chondrites, and different ranks of coal.
I have performed hydrothermal experiments with model aromatic carboxylic acids in the presences of different oxide minerals to investigate the reactions available to carboxylic acids in the presence of mineral surfaces. By performing experiments containing one organic compound and one mineral surface, I can begin to unravel the different reactions that can occur in the presence of different minerals.
I performed experiments with phenylacetic acid (PAA), hydrocinnamic acid (HCA) and benzoic acid (BA) in ... (more)
