Mössbauer effect studies on cubanite (CuFe2S3) and related iron sulphides
The Mossbauer spectrum of the orthorhombic mineral cubanite (CuFe2S3) has been compared with those of related iron sulphides: KFeS2, CuFeS2, FeCr2S4, Feln2S4, and Cu2FeSnS4. Systematic trends ofExpand
27 Al nuclear magnetic resonance studies of the hydrolysis and polymerisation of the hexa-aquo-aluminium(III) cation
The hydrolysis of aluminium salt solutions has been studied using 27AI and 1H n.m.r. and this has led to reliable values for the concentrations of the species of AI(H2O)63+, AI2(OH)2(H2O)84+, andExpand
Discovery of the transfermium elements
Abstract In 1985 IUPAP and IUPAC decided to establish a Transfermium Working Group to consider questions of priority in the discovery of elements with nuclear charge number Z>;100. The membership ofExpand
Vanadium to dubnium: from confusion through clarity to complexity
The tangled history of the discovery and naming of the three elements vanadium, niobium and tantalum some 200 years ago is reviewed. Similar controversies attended the much more recent synthesis andExpand
