Title: Hydrothermal synthesis of lindgrenite with a hollow and prickly sphere-like architecture

Abstract

Lindgrenite [Cu{sub 3}(OH){sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 2}] with a hollow and prickly sphere-like architecture has been synthesized via a simple and mild hydrothermal route in the absence of any external inorganic additives or organic structure-directing templates. The hierarchical lindgrenite particles are hollow and prickly spheres, which are comprised of numerous small crystal strips that are aligned perpendicularly to the spherical surface. Two factors are important for the formation of hollow and prickly architecture in the present process. One is the general phenomenon of Ostwald ripening in solution, which can be responsible for the hollow structure; the other is that lindgrenite crystals have a rhombic growth habit, which plays an important role in the formation of prickly surface. Furthermore, Cu{sub 3}Mo{sub 2}O{sub 9} with the similar size and morphology can be easily obtained by a simple thermal treatment of the as-prepared lindgrenite in air atmosphere. - Graphical abstract: Lindgrenite [Cu{sub 3}(OH){sub 2}(MoO{sub 4}){sub 2}] with a hollow and prickly sphere-like architecture has been synthesized via a hydrothermal route.
