Abstract

Application of structural principles, especially the electroneutrality principle, to lithiophorite leads to the suggestion that it contains alternating layers Al_(14)Li_6(OH)_(42), with one octahedron in 2l vacant, and Mn^)2+)_3 Mn^(4+)_(18)O_(42), repeating in six layers and with hexagonal symmetry, ɑ_(hex) = 1337Å and C_(hex) = 28.20Å space group P3_1. This structure is a superstructure of the monoclinic structure reported by Wadsley in 1952.
