Frost, Ray L., Palmer, Sara J., & Bahfenne, Silmarilly (2011) A Near-infrared and Raman spectroscopic study of the mineral richelsdorfite Ca2Cu5Sb[Cl|(OH)6|(AsO4)4]•6H2O. Spectrochimica Acta Part A : Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 78(4), pp. 1302-1304.
Raman spectroscopy has enabled insights into the molecular structure of the richelsdorfite Ca2Cu5Sb[Cl|(OH)6|(AsO4)4]·6H2O. This mineral is based upon the incorporation of arsenate or phosphate with chloride anion into the structure and as a consequence the spectra reflect the bands attributable to these anions, namely arsenate or phosphate and chloride. The richelsdorfite Raman spectrum reflects the spectrum of the arsenate anion and consists of ν1 at 849, ν2 at 344 cm−1, ν3 at 835 and ν4 at 546 and 498 cm−1. A band at 268 cm−1 is attributed to CuO stretching vibration. Low wavenumber bands at 185 and 144 cm−1 may be assigned to CuCl TO/LO optic vibrations.
