Raman and infrared spectroscopic study of the molybdate containing uranyl mineral calcurmolite
Frost, Ray L., Cejka, Jiri, & Dickfos, Marilla J. (2008) Raman and infrared spectroscopic study of the molybdate containing uranyl mineral calcurmolite. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 39(7), pp. 779-785.
Raman and infrared spectra of calcurmolite were recorded and interpreted from the uranium and molybdenum polyhedra, water molecules and hydroxyls point of view. U-O bond lengths in uranyl and Mo-O bond lengths in MoO6 octahedra were calculated and O-H…O bond lengths were inferred from the spectra. The mineral calcurmolite is characterised by bands assigned to the vibrations of the UO2 units. These units provide intense Raman bands at 930, 900 and 868 and 823 cm-1. These bands are attributed to the antisymmetric and symmetric stretching modes of the UO2 units respectively. Raman bands at 794, 700, 644, 378 and 354 cm-1 are attributed to vibrations of the MoO4 units. The bands at 693 and 668 cm-1 are attributed to antisymmetric and symmetric Ag modes of terminal MO2 units. Similar bands are observed at 797 and 773 cm-1 for koechlinite and 798 and 775 cm-1 for lindgrenite. It is probable that some of the bands in the low wavenumber region are attributable to the bending modes of MO2 units.

Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
