Title: Crystallographic properties of fertilizer compounds

Abstract

This bulletin is a compilation of crystallographic data collected at NFERC on 450 fertilizer-related compounds. In TVA`s fertilizer R and D program, petrographic examination, XRD, and infrared spectroscopy are combined with conventional chemical analysis methods in identifying the individual compounds that occur in fertilizer materials. This handbook brings together the results of these characterization studies and supplemental crystallographic data from the literature. It is in one-compound-per-page, loose-leaf format, ordered alphabetically by IUPAC name. Indexes provided include IUPAC name, formula, group, alternate formula, synonyms, x-ray data, optical data. Tables are given for solids, compounds in commercial MAP and DAP, and matrix materials in phosphate rock.

  • The reduced molybdenum oxides Mo/sub 4/O/sub 11/-orh, Mo/sub 4/O/sub 11/-mon, Mo/sub 8/O/sub 23/, and Mo/sub 18/O/sub 52/ were synthesized. These compounds, as well as MoO/sub 3/, were characterized by x-ray diffraction, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Raman and FT-IR spectroscopies, and BET surface area measurements. The oxides were then studied in a pulsed reactor at 500/sup 0/C in the selective oxidation of butene and butadiene. The data suggested a process in which the surface site must become more oxidized in parallel with the oxidation of the adsorbed hydrocarbon. Evidence supporting this idea included the high selectivity to maleic anhydride observed over amore » completely oxidized surface and differences in the reactivity of butene and butadiende. In particular, oxygen insertion into butadiene to form furan occurred in the absence of gas phase O/sub 2/ over the reduced phases, while oxygen insertion into butene required the presence of molecular oxygen. Maleic anhydride formation required the presence of molecular oxygen except in the case of butadiene oxidation over MoO/sub 3/. The long range ordering of defects, known as crystallographic shear, was not shown to have any influence on the initial interaction of reactant and solid. However, the unusual coordination geometries and surface structures that are thought to be caused by the presence of shear planes may be related to the differences in catalytic selectivity observed for these oxides.« less
