Frost, Ray L. & Palmer, Sara J. (2011) Vibrational spectroscopic study of the mineral tsumebite Pb2Cu(PO4,SO4) (OH). Spectrochimica Acta Part A : Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 79(5), pp. 1794-1797.
The mineral tsumebite Pb2Cu(PO4)(SO4)(OH), a copper phosphate-sulfate hydroxide of the brackebuschite group has been characterised by Raman and infrared spectroscopy. The brackebuschite mineral group are a series of monoclinic arsenates, phosphates and vanadates of the general formula A2B(XO4)(OH,H2O), where A may be Ba, Ca, Pb, Sr, while B may be Al, Cu2+,Fe2+, Fe3+, Mn2+, Mn3+, Zn and XO4 may be AsO4, PO4, SO4,VO4.
Bands are assigned to the stretching and bending modes of PO43- and HOPO3 units. Hydrogen bond distances are calculated based upon the position of the OH stretching vibrations and range from 2.759 Å to 3.205 Å. This range of hydrogen bonding contributes to the stability of the mineral.
