The Structures of Two Hole Centers in the Mineral Brasilianite NaAl3(PO4)2(OH)4

Two hole centers were detected in natural brazilianite by EPR at X-band and temperatures between 20 and 300 K. For the more intense center a hyperfine splitting (hfs) due to two nonequivalent Al nuclei could be completely analyzed by comparison of the hfs patterns with simulations for 1 ≦ A1/A2 ≦1.4. The orientation of the principle axes of these hfs tensors allowed to assign this hole to a specific oxygen in the lattice. The phosphorus bound to it is evidently exchanged against a lower valency cation, most likely Si4+ . In the second center a hfs splitting due to one Al and one P nucleus was identified. Although a complete analysis of their hfs tensors was not possible, this center could also be assigned to a particular oxygen for which evidently one adjacent Al is exchanged against a divalent ion.
