Abstract: Sidorenkite is a very rare low-temperature hydrothermal mineral, formed very late in the crystallization of hyperagpaitic pegmatites in a differentiated alkalic massif (Mt. Alluaiv, Kola Peninsula, Russia). Sidorenkite Na3Mn(PO4)(CO3) is a phosphate–carbonate of sodium and manganese. Such a formula with two oxyanions lends itself to vibrational spectroscopy. The sharp Raman band at 959 cm 1 and 1012 cm 1 are assigned to the PO43 stretching modes, whilst the Raman bands at 1044 cm 1 and 1074 cm 1 are attributed to the CO32 stretching modes. It is noted that no Raman bands at around 800 cm 1 for sidorenkite were observed. The infrared spectrum of sidorenkite shows a quite intense band at 868 cm 1 with other resolved component bands at 850 and 862 cm 1. These bands are ascribed to the CO32 out-of-plane bend (m2) bending mode. The series of Raman bands at 622, 635, 645 and 704 cm 1 are assigned to the m4 phosphate bending modes. The observation of multiple bands supports the concept of a reduction in symmetry of the carbonate anion from D3h or even C2v.
