Abstract

The Raman spectra of selected double carbonates including pirssonite, gaylussite, shortite and quintinite complemented with infrared spectra have been used to characterise the structure of these carbonate minerals. By using a Libowitzky type function hydrogen bond distances for these minerals of 2.669 to 2.766 Å are estimated. The variation in the hydrogen bond distances contributed to the stability of the mineral. The Raman spectrum of pirssonite shows a single band at 1080 cm-1 attributed to the (CO3)2- symmetric stretching mode, in contrast to shortite and quintinite where two bands are observed. Multiple bands are observed for the antisymmetric stretching and bending region for these minerals proving that the carbonate unit is distorted in the structure of pirssonite and gaylussite.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
