Raman spectroscopic study of the uranyl phosphate minerals phosphuranylite and yingjiangite
Raman spectra of phosphuranylite and yingjiangite were measured, interpreted and compared with published infrared spectra of both minerals. U-O bond lengths were calculated using the Bartlett-Cooney‘s empirical relations and the O-H-O hydrogen bond lengths were inferred on the basis of Libowitzky's empirical relation. The presence of oxonium and (H3O)+ ions, expected from the single crystal structure analysis of phosphuranylite, was not inferred from the Raman spectra. It was assumed that phosphuranylite and yingjiangite are identical and the name yingjiangite should be discarded because the name phosphuranylite has priority.
