The structure of the mineral leogangite Cu10(OH)6(SO4)(AsO4)4·8H2O--implications for arsenic accumulation and removal.

Abstract

The objective of this research is to determine the molecular structure of the mineral leogangite. The formation of the types of arsenosulphate minerals offers a mechanism for arsenate removal from soils and mine dumps. Raman and infrared spectroscopy have been used to characterise the mineral. Observed bands are assigned to the stretching and bending… (More)
