Frost, Ray L., Kloprogge, J. Theo, & Martens, Wayde N. (2004) Raman spectroscopy of the arsenates and sulphates of the tsumcorite mineral group. Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, 35(1), pp. 28-35.

The structure of a selection of arsenate and sulphate based minerals of the tsumcorite group has been studied by the combination of Raman and infrared spectroscopy. A comparison is made with the sulphate bearing mineral natrochalcite. Isomorphic substitution of sulphate for arsenate is observed for gartrellite and thometzekite. 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. Estimates of the hydrogen bond distances are calculkated using a Libowitzky type function. Characteristic Raman spectra of the minerals enable the assignment of the bands to specific vibrational modes.

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.
