THE ALUMINUM AGE – Prof. Chris Exley
We are living in The Aluminium Age. WE ARE LIVING IN THE ALUMINUM AGE (Prof. Chris Exley – 3/21/2017)

Throughout the history of humankind we have lived through various ‘metal ages’ including the Iron Age and the Bronze Age.  Towards the end of the nineteenth century there was arguably one of the most important technological advances of the modern era.  A method was developed to make aluminium metal, and henceforth myriad aluminium salts and compounds, from the abundant aluminium ores which constitute the Earth’s crust.  This landmark discovery changed aluminium from being considered as a rare and precious metal, with a similar commercial value to gold, to a metal which was cheap and abundant, and this was the event which heralded the advent of The Aluminium Age.

Acute toxicity of aluminium to fish eliminated in silicon-rich acid waters

An increased level of aluminium in acidified natural waters is a primary cause of fish death from damage to gill epithelia and loss of osmoregulatory capacity1–4. Aluminium toxicity depends on the species of aluminium present (cationic, neutral or anionic) and hence is affected by pH and the presence of complexing ligands, such as fluoride, and organic material, such as humic acid, which may ameliorate aluminium toxicity5,6. But silicic acid, Si(OH) 4, present in natural waters as a consequence of the weathering of the aluminosilicates of rocks and soil minerals, has a strong and unique affinity for aluminium7, although its influence on toxicity has not been investigated. Here we show that, with an excess of Si over Al and with the formation of hydroxy-aluminosilicate species, the bioavailability of aluminium at pH 5 is reduced and acute toxicity is eliminated. Silicic acid concentration should therefore be considered as a key parameter in toxicity studies and could be important for the treatment of vulnerable waters.
