Mössbauer Spectroscopy of Inorganic Antimony Compounds

  • J. G. Stevens
  • L. H. Bowen


In recent years Mössbauer effect spectroscopy (MES) has been applied to the study of antimony compounds by groups at Argonne National Laboratory [1, 2] and Moscow State University [3]. This investigation extends the measured compounds to include all the simple oxides, sulfides, and halides of antimony. The use of MES for determination of oxidation state, bond character, and structural features is discussed. The shapes of the spectra have been studied in order to obtain additional parameters. The parameters which affect shape include the ratio of the quadrupole moment of the excited state to the ground state of Sb121, R; the quadrupole splitting, QS; and the asymmetry factor, η.
