Raman and thermo-Raman spectroscopy have been applied to study the natural hydrotalcite manasseite Mg6Al2(OH)16(CO3).4H2O. Hydrogen bond distances calculated using a Libowitzky-type empirical function varied between 2.61 and 3.00 Å. Stronger hydrogen bonds were formed by water units as compared to the hydroxyl units. Thermo-Raman spectroscopy enabled the identification of bands attributed to the hydroxyl units. Two Raman bands at 1062 and 1058 cm-1 are assigned to symmetric stretching modes of the carbonate anion. Thermal treatment shifts these bands to higher wavenumbers indicating a change in the carbonate bonding.

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.
