Abstract

A comprehensive spectroscopic analysis consisting of Raman, infrared (IR) and near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy was undertaken on the newly discovered mineral Hoganite (Copper(II) acetate monohydrate (Cu(CH3COO)2 H2O)). Assignments of vibrational bands due to the acetate anion have been made in all three forms of spectroscopy. Thermal analysis of the mineral was undertaken to follow its decomposition under a nitrogen atmosphere. Two major mass loss steps at 90 and 220 C were revealed. These mass losses correspond very well to firstly, the loss of a single water molecule, and then the loss of the acetate anion which quickly decomposes to form carbon dioxide and water.

Citation countsare 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.
