The application of Raman spectroscopy to the study of the uranyl mineral coconinoite Fe2Al2(UO2)2(PO4)4(SO4)(OH)2•20H2O
Frost, Ray L., Palmer, Sara J., & Cejka, Jiri (2011) The application of Raman spectroscopy to the study of the uranyl mineral coconinoite Fe2Al2(UO2)2(PO4)4(SO4)(OH)2•20H2O. Spectroscopy Letters, 44(6), pp. 381-387.
Raman spectra of the uranyl containing mineral coconinoite, Fe2Al2(UO2)2(PO4)4(SO4)(OH)2•20H2O, are presented and compared with the mineral’s infrared spectra. Bands connected with (UO2)2+, (PO4)3- , (SO4)2-, (OH)- and H2O stretching and bending vibrations, are assigned. Approximate U-O bond lengths in uranyl, (UO2)2+, and O-H...O hydrogen bond lengths are calculated from the wavenumbers of the U-O stretching vibrations and (OH)- and H2O stretching vibrations, respectively, and compared with published data for similar natural and synthetic compounds.
