  • Abstract The crystal structure of natural hydrous rutile from a mantle eclogite nodule has been refined from single-crystal neutron diffraction data collected at 24 K. The chemical composition was 95.52 wt% TiO2, 0.74 wt% Fe2O3, 0.68 wt% Al2O3, 1.16 wt% Cr2O3, 1.86 wt% Nb2O5, and 0.04 wt% MnO, with approximately 13000 ppm OH-, as estimated by IR spectroscopy. The position of the H atom was located by examining the negative residuals in the difference Fourier maps. The refined position is near… CONTINUE READING
