Raman spectroscopy of potassium acetate-intercalated kaolinites at liquid nitrogen temperature
Frost, Ray L., Kristof, Janos, Schmidt, Jolene, & Kloprogge, J. Theo (2001) Raman spectroscopy of potassium acetate-intercalated kaolinites at liquid nitrogen temperature. Spectrochimica Acta Part A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 57(3), pp. 603-609.
Raman microscopy has been used to study low and high defect kaolinites and their potassium acetate intercalated complexes at 298 and 77 K. Raman spectroscopy shows significant differences in the spectra of the hydroxyl-stretching region of the two types of kaolinites, which is also reflected in the spectroscopy of the hydroxyl-stretching region of the intercalation complexes. Additional bands to the normally observed kaolinite hydroxyl stretching frequencies are observed for the low and high defect kaolinites at 3605 and 3602 cm−1 at 298 K. Upon cooling to liquid nitrogen temperature, these bands are observed at 3607 and 3604 cm−1, thus indicating a weakening of the hydrogen bond formed between the inner surface hydroxyls and the acetate ion. Upon cooling to liquid nitrogen temperature, the frequency of the inner hydroxyls shifted to lower frequencies. Collection of Raman spectra at liquid nitrogen temperature did not give better band separation compared to the room temperature spectra as the bands increased in width and shifted closer together.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
