V.A. Poturay


The author represents his investigation of the oxygen-containing compounds composition in sterile steam-water mixture from wells and in high-temperature springs of the Mutnovskaya, Paratunskaya and Uzonskaya hydrothermal systems. Using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, it has been identified 42 oxygen-containing compounds belonging to 7 homologous series. Alcohols, esters, carboxylic acids, aldehydes and ketones of biogenic origin are widely distributed in the hydrothermal systems.
