Abstract This proposal sets out to investigate the mechanisms and kinetics of mineral-fluid reactions in surface and sub-surface environments, using state-of-the-art X-ray diffraction facilities to provide information that hitherto has been obtained using synchrotron facilities or has been lacking. The individual projects chosen to support the bid are drawn from a wide range of current research activities, and represent three different sectors of application: petroleum clastic reservoir diagenesis, waste disposal and containment, and mineral surface studies which provide fundamental information for contaminated land studies. The request is for £97160 (49%) to permit purchase of equipment costing £197290 (including VAT).
