Using atomic force microscopy (AFM) and a flow-through cell, we show that dissolved, potentially toxic metals such as Zn2+, Cd2+, Co2+, Ni2+, Cu2+ and Pb2+ can be effectively sequestered as solid hydroxide phases on brucite (Mg(OH)2) surfaces through interface-coupled dissolution-precipitation processes. This study highlights such coupled dissolution-precipitation reactions at mineral surfaces as an important mechanism to control the fate and mobility of contaminants in the environment.
