[OLD] Mineral preference control


Recommended Posts

Subject: mineral preference control

I am trying to evaluate solubility of amorphous silica, but the preferred solid is quartz. How do I "turn off" or disqualify the possibility of quartz formation in order to allow calculation of amorphous SiO2 solubility?

One thing you can do is type the following in your input file:

suppress Quartz Cristobalite Tridymite Chalcedony

This will mean that of the silica polymorphs, only amorphous silica will precipitate.
