Strange mineral discovered in an abandoned mine in Siberia. They are unique on Earth
Posted on August 9, 2016 by Radu Ungureanu in Science and knowledge // 1 Comment
Researchers have discovered some strange minerals inside a mine in Siberia, which they claim is unlike any other on earth ore found so far. What is even more interesting is that in the mid-80s, scientists were creating in the laboratory of similar properties, believing that they are not found in nature.
In laboratory These minerals are known as MOFs and works like a sponge that can absorb molecular hydrogen or carbon dioxide in nature. Researchers have been modified MOF sites to improve their performance in recent years, for them to help increasingly more to reduce CO2 emissions in the Earth’s atmosphere, without thinking to look good in nature.
” The discovery of these minerals in Siberia completely changes our belief that they could only be achieved artificially. There can sometimes find other minerals in the future about whose existence had not informed, “he said Tomislav Friscic researcher, professor at McGill University in Canada.
What’s weirder, these minerals in Siberia called Stepanov Zhemchuzhnikovite were actually discovered over 70 years ago. But in the mid 1940s technological limitations prevented the examination and determining their properties properly, researchers have studied those times have not considered important or unique.
Like MOF’s from the lab, both Stepanovitele Zhemchuzhnikovitele and have a developed structure, honeycomb, with large gaps at the molecular level. Considering the fact that MOF’s are currently used for further diminish the effects of increasing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, the discovery is extremely exciting and beneficial for the planet.
