The Raman spectrum of the basic carbonate-sulphate minerals known as leadhillite, susannite and caledonite have been measured and the spectra compared with the Raman spectra of cerussite, hydrocerussite and anglesite. Characteristic spectral patterns are observed for each mineral. The wavenumber position of the hydroxyl stretching bands is used to estimate the hydrogen bond distances in the minerals. The hydrogen bond distances for leadhillite polymorphs vary from 2.783 to 2.916 Å. In comparison the estimated hydrogen bond distances for hydrocerussite are much longer with values of 2.961 and 3.127 Å. The width of the hydroxyl stretching vibration provides an estimate of the variation of hydrogen bond distances for the OH groups in the mineral. The variation in bond length is greater for the longer hydrogen bonds. Characteristic sulphate and carbonate vibrations are also identified.

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.
