A series of molybdate bearing minerals including wulfenite, powellite, lindgrenite and iriginite have been analysed by Raman microscopy. These minerals are closely related and often have related paragenesis. Raman microscopy enables the selection of individual crystals of these minerals for spectroscopic analysis even though several of the minerals can be found in the same matrix because of the paragenetic relationships between the minerals. The molybdenum bearing minerals lindgrenite, iriginite and koechlinite were studied by scanning electron microscopy and compositionally analysed by EDX methods using an electron probe before Raman spectroscopic analyses. The Raman spectra are assigned according to factor group analysis and related to the structure of the minerals. These minerals have characteristically different Raman spectra.

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.
