Raman spectroscopy of synthetic CaHPO4•2H2O– and in comparison with the cave mineral brushite
Frost, Ray L., Xi, Yunfei, Pogson, Ross E., Millar, Graeme J., Tan, Keqin, & Palmer, Sara J. (2012) Raman spectroscopy of synthetic CaHPO4•2H2O– and in comparison with the cave mineral brushite. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 43(4), pp. 571-576.
The mineral brushite has been synthesised by mixing calcium ions and hydrogen phosphate anions to mimic the reactions in a Cave. The vibrational spectra of the synthesised brushite were compared with that of the natural Cave mineral. Bands attributable to the PO43- and HPO42- anions are observed. Brushite, both synthetic and natural, is characterised by an intense sharp band at 985 cm-1 with a shoulder at 1000 cm-1. Characteristic bending modes are observed in the 300 to 600 cm-1 region. The spectra of the synthesised brushite matches very well the spectrum of brushite from the Moorba Cave, Western Australia.
