Interactions between aqueous Zn and mineral surfaces can lead to notable Zn isotope fractionation that affects Zn source fingerprinting, which needs an atomic-level understanding. In this study, we demonstrate that Zn isotope fractionation (Δ66Znsorbed-aqueous) during Zn sorption onto γ-Al2O3 depends on both pH and Zn concentration and ultimately correlates to surface coverage (Γ). At pH values of 6.0-6.5 and/or Zn concentrations of 0.1-0.2 mM, where Γ < 0.8 µmol m-2, Δ66Znsorbed-solution is 0.47 ± 0.03‰, whereas Δ66Znsorbed-aqueous decreases to 0.02 ± 0.07‰ at pH values of 7.0-8.0 and Zn concentrations of 0.4-0.8 mM, with a high Γ ranging from 1.5 to 3.2 µmol m-2. Using extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy, we elucidated that a Zn-Al layered double hydroxide (LDH) with a Zn-O bond length of 2.06 Å forms at high surface coverage (1.5 < Γ < 3.2 µmol m-2). In contrast, at low surface coverage (Γ < 0.8 µmol m-2), the sorbed Zn occurs as a tetrahedrally coordinated inner-sphere surface complex with an average Zn-O interatomic distance of 1.98 Å. Such contrasts lead to an atomic level understanding of the strong links between isotope fractionation, local bonding structures (i.e., coordination and bond distances), and solution chemistry, which is crucial for more effective applications of stable metal isotopes as environmental tracers.
