The structure of the hydrotalcite desautelsite Mg6Mn2CO3(OH)16.4H2O has been studied by a combination of Raman and infrared spectroscopy. Three intense Raman bands are observed at 1086, 1062 and 1055 cm-1. A model based upon the observation of three CO3 stretching vibrations is presented. The CO3 anion may be (a) non-hydrogen bonded (b) hydrogen bonded to the interlayer water and (c) hydrogen bonded to the brucite-like hydroxyl surface. Two intense bands at 3646 and 3608 cm-1 are attributed to MgOH and MnOH stretching vibrations. Infrared bands at 3476, 3333, 3165 and 2991 cm-1 are assigned to water stretching bands. Raman spectroscopy has proven a powerful tool for the study of hydrotalcite minerals

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.
