Abstract

In the deeper parts of the Black Sea basin, water is anoxic. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) occurs naturally, and its concentration is nearly constant, around 9.5 mg/L at 1500 m depth. Its high solubility, and the existing chemical environment facilitate its accumulation and containment in the seawater, and its extraction poses a challenge.
