Lithium Metal Extraction from Seawater ScienceDirect
In another study Hoshino employed the dialysis method to achieve the concentration of lithium. 10 After 24 hr of operation concentrated lithium salt solution 7 of the lithium concentration in seawater was obtained. Clearly the lithium extraction rates of the current techniques are relatively slow.
Silicon Si and water Lenntech
As was explained earlier silicon is part of various minerals from which it may be released during weathering processes. It is also released under water during volcanic activity. Water in interspaces of marine sediments contains more silicon than the sea surface. The present current causes silicon to flow from sediments to seawater.
Major ion composition of seawater Lenntech
Currently the world uses 11.000 desalination plants to produce daily 20 million cubic meters per day. They mostly use seawater with an average TDS of 40.000 ppm and brackish water with an average TDS of 10.000 ppm and can be found in each continent

seawater about 600 grams of igneous rock had reacted with about 1 kg of volatile substances from inside the earth e.g. H2O HCl CO2 to form seawater 600 grams of sediments and 3 liters of atmosphere. This oneway weathering type reaction was written as: igneous rock 0.6kg volatiles 1kg seawater 1L sediments 0.6kg air 3L
The concentration of boron in Precambrian seas ScienceDirect
Precambrian samples have a mean value of 422 24 ppm boron the standard deviation s of the individual values about the mean is 136. The postPrecambrian group has a mean of 459 10 and s is 81. The signi ficance of the difference between the two means was investigated by means of a modified test.

PDF Silica in Sea Water: Control by Silica Minerals
41 For example silicon oxide is relatively water insoluble compared to other minerals and its concentration and slow release from silica minerals in seawater has been studied over a few decades
Why is the ocean salty USGS
The concentration of salt in seawater its salinity is about 35 parts per thousand in other words about 3.5 of the weight of seawater comes from the dissolved salts. In a cubic mile of seawater the weight of the salt as sodium chloride would be about 120 million tons.
