Frost, Ray L., Cejka, Jiri, Weier, Matt L., & Ayoko, Godwin A. (2006) Raman spectroscopic study of the uranyl phosphate mineral dewindtite. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 37(12), pp. 1362-1367.

Raman spectra of two uranyl mineral dewindtite samples are presented and interpreted. Observed bands are attributed to the stretching and bending vibrations of (UO2)2+ and (PO4)3- units and water molecules. Hydrogen bonding network in dewindtite crystal structure is shortly mentioned. U-O bond lengths in uranyls are calculated with empirical relations and wavenumbers of the (UO2)2+ stretching vibrations. These calculations are in agreement with the X-ray single crystal structure data.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
