Raman spectroscopic study of the uranyl oxyhydroxide hydrates : becquerelite, billietite, curite, schoepite and vandendriesscheite
Frost, Ray L., Cejka, Jiri, & Weier, Matt L. (2006) Raman spectroscopic study of the uranyl oxyhydroxide hydrates : becquerelite, billietite, curite, schoepite and vandendriesscheite. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 38(4), pp. 460-466.
Raman and infrared spectra of five uranyl oxyhydroxide hydrates, becquerelite, billietite, curite, schoepite and vandendriesscheite are reported. Observed bands are attributed to the (UO2)2+ stretching and bending vibrations, U-OH bending vibrations, H2O and (OH)- stretching, bending and libration modes. U-O bond lengths in uranyls and O-H…O bond lengths are calculated from the wavenumbers assigned to the stretching vibrations. They are close to the values inferred and/or predicted from the X-ray single crystal structure. The complex hydrogen-bonding network arrangement was proved in the structures of all minerals studied. This hydrogen bonding contributes to the stability of these uranyl minerals.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
