We provide new experimental data of monazite, xenotime and U-Th-bearing cheralite solubility in slightly peralkaline to peraluminous granitic melts using dissolution and reverse (i.e., recrystallisation after dissolution) experiments in water-saturated and flux-bearing (P+F+Li) granitic melts, at 800 °C and 200 MPa. Although a positive correlation between REE solubility and melt peralkalinity is confirmed, monazite solubilities reported here are much lower than the values previously pub…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
