The kaolinite-like phyllosilicate minerals bismutoferrite BiFe3+2Si2O8(OH) and chapmanite SbFe3+2Si2O8(OH) have been studied by Raman spectroscopy and complemented with infrared spectra. Tentatively interpreted spectra were related to their molecular structure. The antisymmetric and symmetric stretching vibrations of the Si-O-Si bridges,  SiOSi and  OSiO bending vibrations,  (Si-Oterminal)- stretching vibrations,  OH stretching vibrations of hydroxyl ions, and  OH bending vibrations were attributed to observed bands. Infrared bands 3289-3470 cm-1 and Raman bands 1590-1667 cm-1 were assigned to adsorbed water. O-H...O hydrogen bond lengths were calculated from the Raman and infrared 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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
