Collaboration established with Ao. Univ. Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. techn. Michael Reissner from the institute of solid state physics, Technical University of Vienna.

Ao. Univ. Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. techn. Michael Reissner will contribute to the current project “Mechanisms and rates of asbestos weathering in the environment” by sharing his expertise in the field of Mößbauer spectroscopy. Together we determine the Fe(II)/Fe(III) ratio of pristine and altered chrysotile asbestos fibers, the crystallographic site of Fe (in octahedral Mg- and tetrahedral Si layers) and secondary Fe phases formed during dissolution of chrysotile.
