"Our idea was to study the history of the oxidation state of iron in these basalts and see if we could pinpoint when the iron began to show signs of oxidation and thus when the deep ocean first started to contain appreciable amounts of dissolved O2," Stolper said in (http://news.berkeley.edu/2018/01/03/which-came-first-complex-life-or-high-atmospheric-oxygen/) a statement Wednesday.

In recovery test for speciation analysis of Cr, As, and Se, two kinds of recovery tests were separately performed using the stock solution for lower oxidation state of Cr(III), As(III), and Se(IV) and that for higher oxidation state of Cr(VI), As(V), and Se(VI) to avoid the oxidation-reduction reaction among these elements.
