Raman spectroscopy of the multianion mineral gartrellite-PbCu(Fe3+,Cu)(AsO4)2(OH,H2O)2
Frost, Ray L., Xi, Yunfei, & Palmer, Sara J. (2012) Raman spectroscopy of the multianion mineral gartrellite-PbCu(Fe3+,Cu)(AsO4)2(OH,H2O)2. Spectrochimica Acta, Part A : Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 89, pp. 93-98.
The multianion mineral gartrellite PbCu(Fe3+,Cu)(AsO4)2(OH,H2O)2 has been studied by a combination of Raman and infrared spectroscopy. The vibrational spectra of two gartrellite samples from Durango and Ashburton Downs were compared. Gartrellite is one of the tsumcorite mineral group based upon arsenate and sulphate anions. Crystal symmetry is either triclinic in the case of an ordered occupation of two cationic sites, triclinic due to ordering of the H bonds in the case of species with 2 water molecules per formula unit, or monoclinic in the other cases. Characteristic Raman spectra of the minerals enable the assignment of the bands to specific vibrational modes. These spectra are related to the structure of gartrellite. The position of the hydroxyl and water stretching vibrations are related to the strength of the hydrogen bond formed between the OH unit and the AsO4 anion.
