Vibrational spectra of Ca(BH4)2

Publication date2008

IR and Raman data were obtained from α-, β-, and mixed (β,γ)-Ca(BH 4) 2 samples and from the deuterated β,γ phase mixture. The results obtained with α phase indicate that the DFT calculated values for the B−H stretching modes and the lattice vibrations are fairly close to the experimental values. The spectral behavior at temperatures around the transition to the β phase shows a continuous transition and suggests the presence of disorder caused by reorientational motions of the [BH 4] − ion in the β phase. The data indicate that there are more deformation bands observed for the mixed (β,γ) samples than for the α phase which indicates structural variations between the β and the γ phases.
