Abstract: <jats:p>A survey is given for the crystallographic and vibrational spectroscopic results of a number of alums. From both types of results (structural and spectroscopic) it is positively known that the sulfate α-alums exhibit orientational disorder of the sulfate anions along the threefold symmetry axis. Both IR and Raman spectra confirm the finding for sulfate disorder in KAl(SO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>·12H<sub>2</sub>O. Only the Raman spectra show clearly that the sulfate anions in many K, Tl and Rb are indeed disordered, in excellent agreement with the crystallographic results [1]. The disorder depends on the nature and size of M<sup>I</sup> cations in the structure, the smaller the radius, the larger the disorder. No anion disorder has thus far been detected in selenate alums. The structure prediction of KAl(SeO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>·12H<sub>2</sub>O allows the existence of disorder of the selenate groups. The latter seems to be corroborated by the study of the Raman spectra of selenate α alums. It is thus worthwhile to have the crystal structure of KAl(SeO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>·12H<sub>2</sub>O refined, in order to check this prediction and as an additional check of the general explanation for the sulfate anion disorder in alums, offered earlier [1].<iframe id="iagdtd_frame" style="position: absolute; width: 1px; height: 1px; left: -9999px;" src=""></iframe></jats:p>
