Greigite: a true intermediate on the polysulfide pathway to pyrite

<p>Abstract</p> <p>The formation of pyrite (FeS<sub>2</sub>) from iron monosulfide precursors in anoxic sediments has been suggested to proceed via mackinawite (FeS) and greigite (Fe<sub>3</sub>S<sub>4</sub>). Despite decades of research, the mec...
