Crystal growth, morphology, structure, and properties of HNaMP2O7 crystals where M = Co and Ni Academic Article uri icon


  • The HNaMP207 (where M = Co and Ni) new Na+ superionic pyrophosphates were obtained by the hydrothermal method at lower PT conditions (T = 250 °C, P = 100 atm). The solubility, complexation with reference to the solvent-solute interaction, and the growth process have been studied in detail. A new investigation on the crystal structure of these compounds showed that the title compounds do not contain Zr as reported previously. The crystal morphology and properties have also been studied. © 1994, Materials Research Society. All rights reserved.
