Abstract

Tellurites may be subdivided according to formula and structure. There are five groups based upon the formulae (a) A(XO3), (b) A(XO3).xH2O, (c) A2(XO3)3.xH2O, (d) A2(X2O5) and (e) A(X3O8). Raman spectroscopy has been used to study rajite and denningite are examples of group (d). Minerals of the tellurite group are porous zeolite-like materials. Raman bands for rajite observed at 740, and 676 and 667 cm-1 are attributed to the ν1 (Te2O5)2- symmetric stretching mode and the ν3 (TeO3)2- antisymmetric stretching modes respectively. A second rajite mineral sample provided a more complex raman spectrum with Raman bands at 754 and 731 cm-1 assigned to the ν1 (Te2O5)2- symmetric stretching modes and two bands at 652 and 603 cm-1 are accounted for by the ν3 (Te2O5)2- antisymmetric stretching mode. The Raman spectrum of dennigite displays an intense band at 734 cm-1 attributed to the ν1 (Te2O5)2- symmetric stretching mode with a second Raman band at 674 cm-1 assigned to the ν3 (Te2O5)2- antisymmetric stretching mode. Raman bands for rajite, observed at (346, 370) and 438 cm-1 are assigned to the (Te2O5)2- ν2 (A1) bending mode and ν4 (E) bending modes.

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.
