A Raman spectroscopic study of the uranyl tellurite mineral schmitterite.

Abstract

Raman spectra of schmitterite measured at 298 and 77K 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 R(U-O)=f[nu(1)(UO(2))(2+)]A and R(U-O)=f[nu(3)(UO(2))(2+)] A, 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.
