The answer to this question could potentially be important for some future work of mine. A catalyst prepared by reacting ruthenium trichloride with zirconium terephthalate in a liquid solution has been found to convert carbon dioxide into methane. However, I can not find any specification on the composition of aforementioned liquid solution, nor on the exact reaction taking place from which I could deduce it. If anyone has or knows where to find this information, I would greatly appreciate it.
Question 1: Under what circumstances could life develop on a planet made entirely of gallium? What could be the properties of these lifeforms? How would the results differ based on the physical state of the gallium? Question 2: Same question, but what if it were instead mercury? Again, what properties would this life possess, and how would the results differ between the states of matter? Question 3: What if it were a mixture of gallium and mercury? Again, what would this life look like, and how would the state of matter influence the results? Que
