Synthesis, Characterization, and Amine Intercalation Behavior of Zinc Phosphite Phenylphosphonate Mixed Derivatives Academic Article uri icon


  • Layered compounds of general formula Zn(O3PH)x(O3PC6H5)1-x.yH2O (where x varies between 0.26 and 0.60) have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, IR, TGA, and 31P MAS NMR. The mixed derivatives consist of single-phase solid solutions in which the overall structure type is maintained while the ratio of phosphite to phenylphosphonate incorporated into the product varies. The interlayer distance of the mixed derivatives is maintained at 14 , equivalent to the phenyl-phenyl interlayer abutment, even at 60% phosphite loading. The intercalation behavior of two representative mixed derivatives, Zn(O3PH)0.44(O3PC6H5)0.56.H2O and Zn(O3PH)0.60(O3PC6H5) toward normal and branched chain alkylamines was also studied. 1995, American Chemical Society.
