Characterisation of Ni silicate-bearing minerals by UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy : Effect of Ni substitution in hydrous Ni-Mg silicates
Reddy, B. Jagannadha, Frost, Ray L., & Dickfos, Marilla J. (2009) Characterisation of Ni silicate-bearing minerals by UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy : Effect of Ni substitution in hydrous Ni-Mg silicates. Spectrochimica Acta Part A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 71(5), pp. 1762-1768.
Three Ni silicate-bearing pimelite, nepouite and pecoraite minerals, from Australia have been investigated by UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy to study the effect of Ni-Mg substitution. The observation of three major absorption bands at 9205-9095 cm-1, 15600-15190 cm-1 and 26550-25660 cm-1 are the characteristic features of Ni2+ in six fold coordination. The effect of cation substitution like Mg2+ for Ni2+ on band shifts in electronic and vibrational spectra enable the distinction between the Ni-bearing silicates.

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.
