Optimal spectrum, site occupancy, and oxidation state of Mn in montmorillonite
American Mineralogist (February 1988) 73 (1-2): 140-144

Abstract

Optical (diffuse-reflectance) spectra are used to characterize the crystal chemistry of Mn in pegmatite-associated montmorillonite. The Mn is present as Mn (super 3+) .
