The effect of light elements on metal/silicate partitioning

Abstract:

The accretion of the Earth was marked by the high-pressure segregation of most of its core, accompanied by dissolution of about 10% of one or more “light” elements into the metallic phase. Various light elements have been proposed including S, Si, C and O, with each having an effect on the partitioning behaviour of the trace elements. Metallurgical data indicate that dissolution of even small amounts of light elements in liquid Fe can have profound effects on the activities of some trace c...
