Raman spectroscopic study of the schmiederite Pb2Cu2[(OH)4|SeO3|SeO4]
Raman spectroscopy lends itself to the studies of selenites, selenates, tellurites and tellurates and related minerals. The mineral schmiederite Pb2Cu2[(OH)4|SeO3|SeO4] is interesting in that both selenite and selenate anions occur in the structure.
Raman bands of schmiederite at 1095 and 934 cm-1 are assigned to the symmetric and antisymmetric mode of the (SeO4)2- anions. For selenates and selenites, the symmetric stretching mode occurs at a higher position than the antisymmetric stretching mode, as is evidenced in the Raman spectrum of schmiederite. The band at 834 cm-1 is assigned to the symmetric (SeO3)2- units. The two bands at 764 and 739 cm-1 are attributed to the antisymmetric (SeO3)2- units. An intense sharp band at 398 cm-1 is assigned to this ν2 bending mode. The two bands at 1576 and 1604 cm-1 are assigned to the deformation modes of the OH units. The observation of multiple OH bands supports the concept of a much distorted structure. This is based upon the four OH units coordinating the copper in a square planar structure. A single symmetric Raman band is observed at 3428 cm-1 and is assigned to the symmetric stretching mode of the OH units. The observation of multiple infrared OH stretching bands supports the concept of non-equivalent OH units in the schmiederite structure.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 downloads displays 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.
