abstract

  • Four new layered mixed-valence vanadium oxides, which contain interlamellar organic cations, alpha-(H(3)N(CH(2))(2)NH(3))[V(4)O(10)] (1a), beta-(H(3)N(CH(2))(2)NH(3))[V(4)O(10)] (1b), alpha-(H(2)N(C(2)H(4))(2)NH(2))[V(4)O(10)] (2a), and beta-(H(2)N(C(2)H(4))(2)NH(2))[V(4)O(10)] (2b), have been prepared under hydrothermal conditions and their single-crystal structures determined: 1a, triclinic, space group P&onemacr;, a = 6.602(2) Å, b = 7.638(2) Å, c = 5.984(2) Å, alpha = 109.55(3) degrees, beta = 104.749(2) degrees, gamma = 82.31(3) degrees, Z = 1; 1b, triclinic, P&onemacr;, a = 6.387(1) Å, b = 7.456(2) Å, c = 6.244(2) Å, alpha = 99.89(2) degrees, beta = 102.91(2) degrees, gamma = 78.74(2) degrees, Z = 1; 2a, triclinic, P&onemacr;, a = 6.3958(5) Å, b = 8.182(1) Å, c = 6.3715(7) Å, alpha = 105.913(9) degrees, beta = 104.030(8) degrees, gamma = 94.495(8) degrees, Z = 1; 2b, monoclinic, space group P2(1)/n, a = 9.360(2) Å, b = 6.425(3) Å, c = 10.391(2) Å, beta = 105.83(1) degrees, Z = 2. All four of the compounds contain mixed-valence V(5+)/V(4+) vanadium oxide layers constructed from V(5+)O(4) tetrahedra and pairs of edge-sharing V(4+)O(5) square pyramids with protonated organic amines occupying the interlayer space.
