In the ancient reactor, the aluminum phosphate captured almost all the noble gases, effectively reducing environmental contamination, Meshik notes.
To determine why aluminum phosphate shows such a remarkable recovery when other crystalline materials do not, John S.
In contrast, both experiments and simulations show that a crystalline form of silicon dioxide known as alpha-quartz, which has the same tetrahedral atomic arrangement as aluminum phosphate, fails to recover from its pressure-induced, disordered state.
Jeanloz conjectures that the memory effect of aluminum phosphate, and of several other crystals tested, depends on the experiment's room-temperature conditions, which probably prevent the squeezed ions from wandering more than a smidgen from their original sites.
Rhone-Poulenc recently announced two other investments in Nashville, one in 1995 to expand sodium aluminum phosphate production, and one $4 million investment in January, 1996 to expand production of sodium hypophosphite.
Along with these, microbes also use solubilizer phosphates such as tricalcium and aluminum phosphates, and make them available to plants.
For example, at a low pH, phosphorus is precipitated as iron and aluminum phosphates which are relatively insoluble and unavailable.
