Abstract (in english)
   The release of Si and Al from feldspar, granodiorite and amphibolite into mildly acid solutions was investigated during long-term laboratory batch experiments. A simple kinetic model, including dissolution of surface defects and precipitation of secondary solids, was proposed. The rate constans for fluxes of Si and Al in and out from solution were estimated on the basis of the model. They are summarized as follow: Si fluxes into solution ( mol.m-2 day-1): feldspar 1.35, granodiorite 2.18, amphibolite 5.57; Al fluxes into solution ( mol.m-2 day-1): feldspar 3.75, granodiorite 1.14, amphibolite 0.18; Ai fluxes out away from solution (day-1): feldspar 6.3x10-3, granodiorite 7.4x10-3, amphibolite 2.3x10-2; Al fluxes out away from solution (day-1): feldspar 4.3x10-2, granodiorite 1.2x10-1, amphibolite 1.6x10-1. The fluxes of silicon from the aluminosilicates increase in the sequence feldspar - granodiorite - amphibolite. The fluxes of aluminium seem to follow the opposite trend.
   The release of Si and Al from feldspar is non-stechiometric. The fluxes of Al from solution into secondary solids greatly exceed the fluxes of Si
