Abstract: A laueite mineral sample from Lavra Da Ilha, Minas Gerais, Brazil has been studied by vibrational spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy with EDX. Chemical formula calculated on the basis of semi-quantitative chemical analysis can be expressed as (Mn2+0.85,Fe2+0.10Mg0.05)P1.00(Fe3+1.90,Al0.10)P2.00(PO4)2(OH)2_8H2O. The laueite structure is based on an infinite chains of vertex-linked oxygen octahedra, with Fe3+ occupying the octahedral centers, the chain oriented parallel to the c-axis and linked by PO4 groups. Consequentially not all phosphate units are identical. Two intense Raman bands observed at 980 and 1045 cm_1 are assigned to the n1 PO43_ symmetric stretching mode. Intense Raman bands are observed at 525 and 551 cm_1 with a shoulder at 542 cm_1 are assigned to the n4 out of plane bending modes of the PO43_. The observation of multiple bands supports the concept of non-equivalent phosphate units in the structure. Intense Raman bands are observed at 3379 and 3478 cm_1 and are attributed to the OH stretching vibrations of the hydroxyl units. Intense broad infrared bands are observed. Vibrational spectroscopy enables subtle details of the molecular structure of laueite to be determined.
