Role of Glycine in Cyanidation of Copper Bearing Gold Ores: an Experimental and Molecular Modeling Study

Aghil Haghdadi; Sima Mohammadnejad

Volume 14, Issue 3 , July 2023, , Pages 999-1009


  The presence of copper bearing minerals in cyanidation of gold ores may lead to several challenges in the CIP/CIL circuits. Many solutions have been proposed to address these problems, one being the use of glycine in the cyanidation process. Here, the experimental as well as molecular modelling studies ...  Read More

Role of Functional Groups in Selective Adsorption of Gold over Copper Cyano complexes by Activated Carbon: A DFT Study

S. Ghasemi; S. Mohammadnejad; M. R. Khalesi

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022, , Pages 891-901


  The adsorption of gold and copper cyanide complexes on the activated carbon is investigated using the Density Functional Theory (DFT). In order to represent the activated carbon, two fullerene-like model (presenting structural defect sites) and a simple graphene layer containing different functional ...  Read More

An insight into effect of surface functional groups on reactivity of Sphalerite (110) surface with Xanthate collector: a DFT study

M. Mohseni; M. Abdollahy; R. Poursalehi; M. R. Khalesi

Volume 9, Issue 2 , April 2018, , Pages 431-439


  The reactivity of the protonated and hydroxylated sphalerite (1 1 0) surface with xanthate was simulated using the density functional theory (DFT). The difference between the energy of the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital of the sphalerite surface and the energy of the highest occupied molecular orbital ...  Read More
