Triple oxygen isotopes
© Huiming Bao 2019. Since the ﬁrst discovery of isotopes of elements 100 years ago, the “detective” power of stable isotopes for processes that occurred in the past, and for elucidating mechanisms at the molecular level, has impressed researchers. While most are interested in the normalized abundance ratios of two isotopes of an element, further power was unleashed when researchers investigated the relationship of three or more isotopes of the same element, e.g., 16O, 17O, and 18O for oxygen. This Element focuses on the history of discovery of triple isotope effects, the conceptual framework behind these eﬀects, and major lines of development in the past few years of triple oxygen isotope research.
