Ionic conductivity of Ag+ exchanged α-zirconium phosphate Academic Article uri icon


  • The conductivity of silver ion in silver exchanged α-zirconium phosphate, Zr(AgPO4)2, was measured in the temperature range 80 to 330°C. The data were found to conform to an Arrehnius type behavior in this temperature range with an activation energy of 0.53eV and 0300°C = 1.94 × 10-4 ohm-1 cm-1. The conductivity values for Ag+ are higher than the corresponding values obtained for Na+ and K+ conduction in their respective exchanged forms. This enhancement is attributed to the greater polarizibility of the silver ion. © 1984.
