Re: arsenopyrite oxidation with Fe+3 modelling with PHREEQC

I don't know exactly how you want to model this reaction. Below is an input
file that takes pure water, equilibrates with arsenopyrite, and then adds a
quantity of FeCl3 and re-equilibrates with arsenopyrite. I used llnl.dat
because it had the arsenopyrite phase in the database; however, you can
make the same calculation with wateq4f.dat if you define arsenopyrite in a
PHASES data block in the input file. The calculation assumes redox
equilibrium for iron.


    Arsenopyrite 0 10

USE solution 1
USE equilibrium_phases 1
      FeCl3 1.0
      .001 moles

Dear Dr. David Parkhurst

I want use the PHREEQC to forward modelling the oxidation of arsenopyrite
by Fe+3, to simulate bacterial action in oxidation process, with this
equation:  FeAsS + 13 Fe+3  + 8H2O = 14Fe+2 + HSO4-2 + SO4-2 + 15H+, but I
don´t know how introduce the Fe3+ in the WATEQ4Fdatabase file, without
cause any trouble in the program calculations, to use it in the REACTION
block, could you have some sugestion to solve this problem?

Thanks in for your attention
