The spectra of orthosilicates and pyrosilicates are of interest both in their own right and as a key to understanding the spectra of more complex silicates. Orthosilicate spectra should indicate the range of variation of the frequencies of OS–iO stretching and OSiO bending vibrations, and should allow us to judge to what extent these vibrations are modified by cation-oxygen forces, or, indeed, can be considered as distinct from vibrations involving translations of the cation, or translations and rotations of the anions: pyrosilicate spectra should reveal the additional features which must arise from SiOSi linkages.
