Raman spectra of two well-defined ferrimolybdite samples, Fe23+(Mo6+O4)3·7–8H2O, from the Krupka deposit (northern Bohemia, Czech Republic) and Hůrky near Rakovník occurrence (central Bohemia, Czech Republic) were studied and tentatively interpreted. Observed bands were assigned to the stretching and bending vibrations of molybdate anions, Fe–O units and water molecules. Number of Raman and infrared bands assigned to (MoO4)2− units and water molecules proved that symmetrically (structurally) nonequivalent (MoO4)2− and H2O are present in the crystal structure of ferrimolybdite. Approximate O–H⋯O hydrogen bond lengths (2.80–2.73 Å) were inferred from the published infrared spectra.

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.
