Substitution of Ti 3+ and Ti 4+ in hibonite (CaAl 12 0 19 )

Doyle, Patricia M.; Schofield, Paul F.; Berry, Andrew; Walker, Andrew M; Knight, K S


The structures of eight synthetic samples of hibonite, with variable Ti oxidation state and Ti concentration (2.4-15.9 wt% TiO2) that span the range reported for natural hibonite found in meteorites, were determined by Rietveld refinements of neutron powder diffraction data. Ti3+ was found to exclusively occupy the octahedral face-sharing M4 site irrespective of the presence or absence of Ti4+. Ti4+ partitions between the trigonal bipyramidal M2 site and the M4 site. The ratio (Ti4+ on...[Show more]
