Knowledge of the partitioning behavior of sulfur between molten metals and silicates is of interest for understanding processes in the early solar system and in the deep Earth at the mantle/core boundary, but also in technical applications such as the production and purification of steel. Thermodynamic aspects relevant to processes in the Earth and in the early solar system are presented by Baker and Moretti (2011) and Ebel (2011) of this review volume. Here we focus on interactions between molten metals and slags which are the basis for desulfurization of molten metals during steel production.

Desulfurization is an important step...
