Concentrations of Selected Vapor-Mobilized Elements

The Handbook of Lunar Materials and the Lunar Sourcebook list Cadmium, Indium, Mercury, Lead, and Germanium as trace elements occuring in concentrations of 0.001 to 10 ppm.

Zinc is much the same in general, although are rock types comparitively rich, such as the breccias at 20 to 25 ppm. In the high-titanium mare basalts, Zn appears up to 18 ppm. Most samples contained Zn concentrations above 1 ppm.

Fluorine, Chlorine, and Iodine all have concentrations ranging widely between as high as 500 ppm and as low as 50, 5, and 1 ppm, respectively.

Sulfur concentrations range from about 0.05% to over 0.2%, with an average of a bit under 0.1%. Mare basalts have the highest concentrations.
