Crystallography of MetastudtiteHide

Crystal System:
Orthorhombic
Class (H-M):
mmm (2/m 2/m 2/m) - Dipyramidal
Space Group:
Pnma
Cell Parameters:
a = 8.411(1) Å, b = 8.744(1) Å, c = 6.505(1) Å
Ratio:
a:b:c = 0.962 : 1 : 0.744
Unit Cell V:
478.39 ų
Z:
2
Morphology:
Fibrous, or as elongated tablets, to 3 mm; in nodules.
Comment:
Data from Rodriguez et al. (2016). Previously assumed to have space group Immm. "In light of the structure determination for studtite, it is likely that the correct unit cell of metastudtite is larger than previously thought, as the repeat length of the chain of uranyl polyhedra in studtite is 8.4 Å, and is not compatible with the 4.2 Å cell dimension" (Burns & Hughes, 2003).
