[R] Treating a vector of characters as object names to create list

I have a vector of characters that I know will be object names and I'd like
to treat this vector as a series of names to create a list. But, for the
life of me, I cannot figure out how to treat a vector of characters as a
vector of object names when creating a list.

For example, this does exactly what I want to do (with 'merged.parameters'
as the end goal):


But, say I have many, many parameters in 'merging' beyond alkalinity and
iron and I'd like to just cleanly turn the elements in 'merging' into a
list. This does not work:


because it's only grabbing the first element of 'merging', for some reason.
Any advice? This feels like it really should be easy...
