Raman spectra of schmitterite measured at 298 and 77 K are presented and discussed in detail and in part in comparison with published IR spectrum of synthetic schmitterite. U-O bond lengths in uranyls, calculated with the empirical relations RU-O = f[○1(UO2)2+] Å and RU-O = f[○3(UO2)2+] Å, are close to those inferred from the X-ray single crystal structure of synthetic schmitterite and agree also with the data for other natural and synthetic uranyl tellurites.

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.
