My watch list  


Ferrihydrite is a ubiquitous iron oxyhydroxide mineral. It is found throughout soil and water systems [1], important to many industrial applications [2] [3], and can even be found within many living organisms including humans[4]. Ferrihydrite only exists as a nanomaterial, and while it has been classified as a mineral by the IMA since 1971, its structure is still a subject of debate.
