X-RAY PHOTOELECTRON SPECTRA OF C(1S ORBITAL) AND O(1S ORBITAL) IN CARBONATE MINERALS

X-ray photoelectron spectra of C(1S orbital) and O(1S orbital) lines in various carbonate minerals illustrate that, as covalency increases, the O (1S orbital) binding energies also increase in calcite, magnesite, and otavite, but decrease in aragonite, strontianite, and witherite. No increase in binding energy could be detected for possible 2P-2P, pi bonding in aragonites and no increase in line-width was detected for O or C from the two sites in dolomite. /AUTHOR/
