Redfield ratio: C/N/P ratio (Ecological stoichiometry) Redfield stoichiometry is the atomic ratio of Carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus found in phytoplankton and throughout the deep oceans. This empirically developed stoichiometric ratio was originally found to be C:N:P = 106:16:1

Ocean Fe Fertilization “Give me half a tanker of iron, and I’ll give you an ice age”
Iron deficiency was limiting ocean productivity and offered an approach to mitigating climate change as well.
Iron fertilization is the intentional introduction of Fe fines to iron-poor areas of the ocean surface to stimulate phytoplankton production.
This is intended to enhance biological productivity and/or accelerate carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration from the atmosphere

The fourth Fe-Fe (3.9-4.0 Å) corresponds to a bond between two iron octahedra sharing one corner. the growth of nuclei is associated with the increase of the amount of double corner sharing (Fe-Fe3, 3.5 Å). Edge-sharing linkages between Fe octahedra are associated with the early steps of the nucleation, and for all samples single-corner linkages exist. Rose et al., 1997, Langmuir , 13, 3240-3246

Knowledge of Iron Chemistry Precipitation pathways for ferrihydrite formation in acidic solutions Ferric speciation over time were studied during ferric oxyhydroxide formation in partially-neutralized ferric nitrate solutions ([Fe3+] = 0.2 M, 1.8 < pH < 3). Fe(H2O)63+, μ-oxo aquo dimers and ferrihydrite are the main Fe species, and that with time, the μ-oxo dimer decreases while the other two species increase in their concentrations.

Knowledge of Iron Chemistry The structure of Ferrihydrite, a nanocrystalline Material
The basic structural motif of the model, which is closely related to the BakerFiggis d-Keggin cluster, consists of 13 iron atoms and 40 oxygens (Fig. 3). The central tetrahedrally coordinated Fe is connected by m4-oxo bridges to 12 peripheral octahedrally coordinated Fe atoms arranged in edge-sharing groups of three. The 2- to 6-nm ferrihydrite nanoparticles can then be described as a threedimensional packing of these clusters with adjacent clusters connected by a common pair of edge-shared octahedra, forming m4-oxo bridges from the three m2-OH groups cis to each of the m4-oxo centers in the bare cluster. This arrangement creates a cubane-like moiety corresponding to four edgeshared Fe octahedra (Fig. 1).
The structure of Ferrihydrite contains 20% tetrahedrally and 80% octahedrally coordinated iron and has a basic structural motif closely related to the Baker-Figgis d-Keggin cluster. Michel et al, 2007, Science, 316:1726-1729

Glucose, Glucose phosphate and Glycolysis 葡萄糖,葡萄糖-6-磷酸, 糖酵解
Glycolysis is common to all organisms, suggesting it evolved early in life. Hydrolysis of phosphate ester (Dephosphorylation) is the reversible processing of phosphorylation, the first step of glycolysis. The general reaction catalyzed by a phosphatase enzyme
Phosphatases catalyze the hydrolysis of a phosphomonoester, removing a phosphate moiety from the substrate. Water is split in the reaction, with the -OH group attaching to the phosphate ion, and the H+ protonating the hydroxyl group of the other product. The net result of the reaction is the destruction of a phosphomonoester and the creation of both a phosphate ion and a molecule with a free hydroxyl group.

RCH2OH + HPO42-
Purple acid phosphatases (PAPs) are metalloenzymes that hydrolyze phosphate esters and anhydrides under acidic condition. The biological roles of PAPs are diverse, including bone resorption, microbial killing and possibly iron transport in animals, and phosphate acquisition in plants. PAPs have a dinuclear iron center to which a tyrosine residue is connected via a charge transfer. This metallic center is composed of Fe3+ and M with a 3.3 Å distance by the oxo ligand, where M is Fe3+, Zn2+, Mg2+ or Mn2+ . A minimal homology for amino acid sequence (
