About Picromerite GroupHide

Formula:
A2M(XO4)2·6H2O
Name:
After the principal species in the group, picromerite.
A group of isostructural compounds often referred to as "Tutton's salts," with a general formula of: A2B(XO4)2·6H2O, where A = K, Rb, Cs, NH4, Tl; M = Mg, Cu, Co, Zn, Mn, etc.; and X = S or Se.
Countless synthetic Tutton's salts are known.
