A review of the structural architecture of tellurium oxycompounds

A.G. Christy, S.J. Mills and A.R. Kampf

Relative to its extremely low abundance in the Earth’s crust, tellurium is the most mineralogically diverse chemical element, with over 160 mineral species known that contain essential Te, many of them with unique crystal structures. This work reviews the crystal structures of 703 tellurium oxysalts for which good refinements exist, including 55 that are known to occur as minerals.

November 2014

The November 2014 issue of the journal is an online only, open access issue made possible by by funding received from the European Commission in the framework of Marie Curie Integrated Training Networks MINSC (290040) and CO2 react (317235).

The objectives of the CO2-REACT network are: (1) to provide urgently needed training in CO2 storage, preparing candidates for critical roles in the coming years and (2) to significantly advance understanding of the fate and consequences of CO2 injection into the subsurface during carbon storage efforts.

MINSC is a European FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) that addresses the current and future challenges of mineral scale formation. The research themes of MINSC relate to the mechanisms of nucleation, growth and inhibition of mineral-scale formation through experimental and field projects. Scale formation is encountered in a large number of industries including paper-making, chemical manufacturing, cement operations, food processing, as well as non-renewable, (i.e., oil and gas) and renewable (i.e., geothermal) energy production.

The issue was guest edited by Thomas Rinder and Tomasz Stawski.
