Abstract

pelecypod shell originated from Kolleru lake of Andhra Pradesh is used in the present work. It contains Mn(II) and Fe(III) in traces. The EPR spectrum of the compound is due to Mn(II) which is in three independent sites . The three g values are evaluated with slight differences. The hyperfine component varies from 9.33 mT to 9.49 mT. The zero field splitting parameter is also ranges from 43.8(1) mT to 44.1(1) mT. Using the covalence parameter the number of ligands around metal is estimated as twenty. In EPR spectrum Fe(III) is identified. The optical absorption spectrum is attributed to Mn(II) in octahedral geometry. Further 10 Dq band is attributed to Fe(II) in the optical absorption spectrum. NIR spectral results are due to water fundamentals. Where as IR and Raman spectrum is due to carbonate ion fundamentals.

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.
