The surge in kinetics studies reflects the fact that many reactions in near Earth surface environment are regulated by kinetics, as the author eloquently made the case in the Preface. Most geochemistry textbooks have five to six chapters to cover thermodynamics, but only one to chapter for some basic introduction to kinetics. Therefore, the book Geochemical Rate Models: An Introduction to Geochemical Kinetics published by Cambridge University Press will no doubt play a significant role in educating our next generation of geologists and will contribute to many solutions for environmental problems.
An experiment is something everybody believes, except the person who made it. If anyone who can bridge the gap between kinetics experiments and models, Rimstidt is one of the few in the world who qualify for it. The author has carried out some of the pioneering and most seminal experiments on quartz dissolution and precipitation e.
His publication was the introduction to geochemical kinetics for me as a graduate student 30 years ago, and this paper has been cited over times, testifying to its importance. In this book, one can understand how the author describes kinetics models using his own experiments and look for his insights that were gained from years of experience.
The book is divided into 10 chapters. The first two chapters introduce the various concepts of model and modeling and provide necessary background information with essential knowledge of chemistry. This prepares the reader for the following chapters. Chapter 3 is on rate equation. Furthermore, the examples used in the chapter are great choices.
Chapter 4 introduces chemical reactors. The author has used most types of reactors in his experiments, and the chapter draws upon his intimate knowledge of their advantages and pitfalls. Chapters 5—7 introduce theories and applications of molecular kinetics, surface chemistry, and transport processes, respectively. These chapters first cover the basic theoretical background and then explain with specific models.
These long-term experimental data formed the basis for establishing quartz solubility as a function of temperature, and also for deriving the standard thermodynamic properties for aqueous species H 4 SiO 4 aq Rimstidt, ; Stefansson, However, Zhu et al.

Analytica Chimica Acta 25, This equation is analogous to Equation 30 in Aagaard and Helgeson except that in their equation the activity of A is raised to a power due to their incorporation of the Tempkin average stoichiometric number.

The specific surface area of the quartz powder was determined using the N 2 BET method Brunauer et al. The silica concentration of the solution samples was measured using the molybdate blue method Govett, The differential rate equation for silica dissolution Equation 33 in Rimstidt and Barnes, has this form.

A stable isotope doping method to test the range of applicability of detailed balance Z. The principle of detailed balance PDB has been a cornerstone for irreversible thermodynamics and chemical kinetics for a long time Wegscheider, Wegscheider, R. Here we report an isotope doping method that independently measures simultaneous dissolution and precipitation rates and can test this principle. Dissolution and precipitation rates are found from the changing isotopic ratios.
Geochemical Rate Models by J. Donald Rimstidt
Our quartz experiment doped with 29 Si showed that the equilibrium dissolution rate remains unchanged at all degrees of undersaturation. We recommend this approach to test the validity of using the detailed balance relationship in rate equations for other substances. Figure 1 Table 1 Figure 2 View all figures and tables.
