Abstract

The vibrational spectra of pseudomalachite, reichenbachite and ludjibaite have been obtained at 298 K using a combination of FTIR and Raman microscopy. The vibrational spectra of the minerals are different, in line with differences in crystal structure and composition. Some similarity in the Raman spectra of the three polymorphs pseudomalachite, reichenbachite and ludjibaite exists, particularly in the OH stretching region, but characteristic differences in the OH deformation regions are observed. Differences are also observed in the phosphate stretching and deformation regions.

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.
