Research output


Black shales are the object of interest to geologists, chemists and biologists. They are widely found around the world and have different ages. Black shales are rich in organic matter, clay minerals and sand grains. Black shale and extracted porosity solution (sub-micron fraction) were analyzed by ICP-MS. During the crystallization of the submicron fraction, structures similar to the macrostructure and similar to the organic world are formed. The structured porous matter microstructures show similarity to the macro- and micro world structures and elements of biological communities. Spheroids are ball-shaped seeds, formed from the nano-particles present in the initial sub-micron fraction. They serve as source elements for crystalloid structures.
