In this contribution we demonstrate that in situ Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool to study the exchange kinetics of oxygen isotopes between aqueous oxo-anions and water using the CO 3 2--H 2O system as an example. In situ exchange experiments have been carried out using a 1M Na 2CO 3 solution at 45, 60, 75, and 100°C in a closed system using an in-house-made Teflon
