Nomenclature of the apatite supergroup minerals
The apatite supergroup includes minerals with a generic chemical formula IX M12 VII M23( IV TO4)3 X( Z ¼ 2); chemically they can be phosphates, arsenates, vanadates, silicates, and sulphates. TheExpand
The Crystal Structure of Tobermorite 14 Å (Plombierite), a C–S–H Phase
The crystal structure of tobermorite 14 A (plombierite) was solved by means of the application of the order-disorder (OD) theory and was refined through synchrotron radiation diffraction data. TwoExpand
This is the final report on the nomenclature of eudialyte-group minerals by the Eudialyte Nomenclature Subcommittee established by the Commission on New Minerals and Mineral Names of theExpand
