Theoretical and experimental studies of Sb₄O₆, rhombohedral P₄O₁₀, and crystalline cubic As₄O₆: vibrational analysis, infrared, and Raman spectra

Keywords and Phrases

Antimony trioxide; Arsenic trioxide; Tetraphosphorous decaoxide


"The work described in this dissertation involves the experimental and computational analysis of three 'molecular' group V crystals: Sb₄O₆, P₄O₁₀, and As₄O₆. The overall goal of study was to continue the improvement in theoretical prediction of physical properties of molecules. To accomplish this, this study examined the three group V adamantanoid caged oxides in the infrared (IR) and Raman then compared and contrasted them to theoretical predicted frequencies"--Motivation and Objective, page 1.
