The uranyl tellurite mineral moctezumite, Pb(UO2)(TeO3)2 was studied by Raman spectroscopy, complemented with infrared spectroscopy. The presence of the stretching and bending vibrations of uranyl, (UO2)2+, and tellurite, (TeO3)2-, ions was inferred and observed bands were assigned to uranyl and tellurite units vibrations. U-O bond lengths calculated from the spectra with two empirical relations are close to those inferred from the X-ray single crystal structure of moctezumite.

Citation counts are 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.
