Preferential elimination of Ba$$^{2+}$$ through irreversible biogenic manganese oxide sequestration

Tani, Yukinori*; Kakinuma, Satomi*; Chang, J.*; Tanaka, Kazuya ; Miyata, Naoyuki*

In this study, we examined the Ba$$^{2+}$$ sequestration potential of enzymatically active biogenic Mn oxides (BMOs) with and without exogenous Mn$$^{2+}$$. The BMOs readily oxidized exogenous Mn$$^{2+}$$ to produce another BMO phase, and subsequently sequestered Ba$$^{2+}$$ at a pH of 7.0, with irreversible Ba$$^{2+}$$ sequestration as the dominant pathway. Extended X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction analyses demonstrated alteration from turbostratic to tightly stacked birnessite through possible Ba$$^{2+}$$ incorporation into the interlayer.
