Key questions in geo- and environmental chemistry concern interactions between water and metal-oxide/mineral surfaces as these are responsible for weathering and for the elimination of pollutants. Large oxide ions could be enormously useful to geochemists in testing hypotheses about reaction pathways at mineral surfaces, but most dissociate rapidly, exchange oxygen atoms too quickly, or have such complicated acida??base chemistry that they are not helpful.
