Dear David, sorry for confusing you. Apparently, I confused the original database with my own one. I recently installed the newest PHREEQC release and thought that the original database was still in the directory. Instead I copied my own from an older directory and made the mistake about vivianite before. However, I can suggest a slight modification to the database from this. The article referred to (Al-Borno & Tomson) provides thermodynamic data about the solubility constant of vivianite. The authors used the MINTEQA2 database for data interpretation and their data is therefore suitable for some of the database related to PHREEQC. The results in PHREEQC format read: Vivianite Fe3(PO4)2:8H2O = 3 Fe+2 + 2 PO4-3 + 8 H2O log_k -35.767 delta_h 5.05 kJ -analytic 234.205 0.0 -12242.6 -92.510 log_k differs somewhat from the original value in PHREEQC (-36.000) and no temperature dependence was included. I apologise for my own mistake. best regards, jasper David L Parkhurst wrote: > > I looked in phreeqc.dat, wateq4f.dat, llnl.dat, and minteq.dat, and none > have analytical expressions for vivianite, nor can I find any instance of > the number 234.205 in any of the databases.
