Raman spectroscopy of the mineral rhodonite
Frost, Ray L., Mills, Stuart J., Kloprogge, J. Theo, & Weier, Matt L. (2005) Raman spectroscopy of the mineral rhodonite. Spectrochimica Acta Part A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 62(1-3), pp. 171-175.
The mineral rhodonite an orthosilicate has been characterised by Raman spectroscopy. The Raman spectra of three rhodonites from Broken Hill, Pachapaqui and Franklin were compared and found to be similar. The spectra are characterised by an intense band at around 1000 cm-1 assigned to the ν1 symmetric stretching mode and three bands at 989, 974 and 936 cm-1 assigned to the ν3 antisymmetric stretching modes. An intense band at around 667 cm-1 was assigned to the ν4 bending mode and showed additional bands exhibiting loss of degeneracy of the SiO4 units. The low wavenumber region of rhodonite is complex. A strong band at 421.9 cm-1 is attributed to the ν2 bending mode. The spectra of the three rhodonite mineral samples are similar but subtle differences are observed. It is proposed that these differences depend upon the cationic substitution of Mn by Ca and/or Fe2+ and Mg

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.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
