A Raman spectroscopic study of bukovskýite Fe2(AsO4)(SO4)(OH)•7H2O-a mineral phase with a significant role in arsenic migration
Loun, Jan, Čejka, Jiří , Sejkora, Jiří , Plášil, Jakub , Novák, Milan, Frost, Ray L., Palmer, Sara J., & Keeffe, Eloise C. (2011) A Raman spectroscopic study of bukovskýite Fe2(AsO4)(SO4)(OH)•7H2O-a mineral phase with a significant role in arsenic migration. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 42(7), pp. 1596-1600.
The Raman spectrum of bukovskýite, Fe3+2(OH)(SO4)(AsO4)•7H2O has been studied and compared with the Raman spectrum of an amorphous gel containing specifically Fe, As and S elements and is understood as an intermediate product in the formation of bukovskýite. Observed bands are assigned to the stretching and bending vibrations of (SO4)2- and (AsO4)3- units, stretching and bending vibrations and librational modes of hydrogen bonded water molecules, stretching and bending vibrations of hydrogen bonded (OH)- ions and Fe3+-(O,OH) units. Approximate range of O-H...O hydrogen bond lengths is inferred from the Raman spectra. Raman spectra of crystalline bukovskýite and of the amorphous gel differ in that the bukovskýite spectrum is more complex, observed bands are sharp, the degenerate bands of (SO4)2- and (AsO4)3- are split and more intense. Lower wavenumbers of H2O bending vibration in the spectrum of the amorphous gel may indicate the presence of weaker hydrogen bonds compared with those in bukovskýite.
