Raman spectroscopic study of the arsenite minerals leiteite ZnAs2O4 , reinerite Zn3(AsO3)2 and cafarsite Ca5(Ti,Fe,Mn)7(AsO3)12.4H2O
Frost, Ray L. & Bahfenne, Silmarilly (2010) Raman spectroscopic study of the arsenite minerals leiteite ZnAs2O4 , reinerite Zn3(AsO3)2 and cafarsite Ca5(Ti,Fe,Mn)7(AsO3)12.4H2O. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 41(3), pp. 325-328.
The selected arsenite minerals leiteite, reinerite and cafarsite have been studied by Raman spectroscopy. DFT calculations enabled the position of AsO22- symmetric stretching mode at 839 cm-1, the antisymmetric stretching mode at 813 cm-1, and the deformation mode at 449 cm-1 to be calculated. The Raman spectrum of leiteite shows bands at 804 and 763 cm-1 assigned to the As2O42- symmetric and antisymmetric stretching modes. The most intense Raman band of leiteite is the band at 457 cm-1 and is assigned to the ν2 As2O42- bending mode. A comparison of the Raman spectrum of leiteite is made with the arsenite minerals reinerite and cafarsite.

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.
