3/16/2018 Evolution of the Earth’s Atmosphere Volcanic activity releases CO 2, methane, ammonia and water vapour into the atmosphere. The water vapour condenses to form oceans. 4 Billion years 3 Billion years Some of the oxygen is converted into ozone. The ozone layer blocks out harmful ultra-violet rays which allows for the development of new life. 2 Billion years 1 Billion years Green plants evolve which take in CO 2 and give out oxygen by photosynthesis, increasing the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere. Carbon from CO 2 becomes locked up in sedimentary rocks as carbonates and fossil fuels and is dissolved into the sea. Methane and ammonia react with the oxygen and nitrogen is released. Present day

Most ores contain METAL OXIDES (e. g. rust = iron oxide). To “extract” a metal from a metal oxide we need to REDUCE the oxygen. This is called a REDUCTION reaction. To put it simply: Iron ore Iron Oxide “Reduce” the oxygen to make iron
How do we do it? Potassium Sodium Calcium Magnesium Aluminium Carbon Zinc 3/16/2018 Metals ABOVE CARBON, because of their high reactivity, are extracted by ELECTROLYSIS, which is very expensive! Metals BELOW CARBON are extracted by heating them with carbon in a BLAST FURNACE. This is a “displacement reaction” Iron Tin Carbon Iron Oxide Lead Copper Silver Gold Platinum These LOW REACTIVITY metals won’t need to be extracted because they are SO unreactive you’ll find them on their own, not in a metal oxide

Smart Alloys 3/16/2018 A “smart alloy” is one that can “remember” its original state after being bent or stretched. These glasses are made from a “smart” material – if they are bent they will return to their original shape.

Aerial view of phytoplankton near Argentina 2) Converting CO 2 into hydrocarbons – carbon dioxide can be converted into hydrocarbons and then stored in the Earth by putting it in such places as old oil fields or coal beds.
