Title: Crystal structure of phosphorus-rich ellenbergerite

Abstract

The phosphorus-rich variety of ellenbergerite (Mg{sub 0.61}Ti{sub 0.08}{open_square}{sub 0.31}){sub 2}(Mg{sub 0.52}Al{sub 0.43}{open_square}{sub 0.05})= {sub 12}[SiO{sub 3}(O{sub 0.29}(OH){sub 0.71})]{sub 6} [(P{sub 0.71}Si{sub 0.20}{open_square}{sub 0.09})O{sub 3}OH]{sub 2}(OH){sub 6} was studied by X-ray diffraction and IR spectroscopy. The structure was refined in sp. gr. P6{sub 3}mc to R = 0.0248. The structure of phosphorus-rich ellenbergerite retains the octahedral framework observed in the structures of ellenbergerite, phosphoellenbergerite, ekatite, and a series of structurally related synthetic compounds. The structure of phosphorus-rich ellenbergerite differs from the structure of ellenbergerite primarily in that the Mg and Al cations in the phosphorus-rich variety are disordered in the octahedra of the framework, thereby leading to higher symmetry, and the channels of triangular cross section are occupied predominantly by P tetrahedra.
