Abstract

Selected joaquinite minerals have been studied by Raman spectroscopy. The minerals are categorised into two groups depending upon whether bands occur in the 3250 to 3450 cm-1 region and in the 3450 to 3600 cm-1 region or in the latter region only. The first set of bands is attributed to water stretching vibrations and the second set to OH stretching bands. In the literature X-ray diffraction could not identify the presence of OH units in the structure of joaquinite. Raman spectroscopy proves that the joaquinite mineral group contain OH units in their structure and in some cases both water and OH units. A series of bands at 1123, 1062, 1031, 971, 912 and 892 cm-1 are assigned to SiO stretching vibrations. Bands above 1000 cm-1 as attributable to νas modes of the (SiO4)4- and (Si2O7)6- units. Bands are observed at 738, around 700, 682, around 668, 621 and 602 cm-1 are attributed to O-Si-O bending modes. The patterns do not appear to match the published infrared patterns of either (SiO4)4- or (Si2O7)6- units. The reason is attributed to the actual formulation of the joaquinite mineral in which significant amounts of Ti or Nb and Fe are found.

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.
