Raman spectrum of the mineral guilleminite Ba[(UO2)3O2(SeO3)2](H2O)3 was studied and complemented by the infrared spectrum of this mineral. Both spectra were interpreted and compared with the spectra of marthozite, larisaite, haynesite and piretite, which all should have the same phosphuranylite anion sheet topology. The presence of symmetrically distinct water molecules and hydrogen bonds was inferred from the spectra. This is in agreement with the crystal structural analysis of guilleminite. U-O bond lengths in uranyl and O-H…O hydrogen bond lengths were calculated from the Raman and/or infrared spectra of guilleminite.

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.
