Title: High-Throughput Synthesis and Characterization of BiMoVOX Materials

Abstract

The high throughput synthesis and characterization of a particular family of ceramic materials, bismuth molybdenum vanadium oxides (BiMoVOX), suitable as inorganic yellow pigments and low temperature oxidation catalysts, is described. Samples, synthesized by calcination and peroxo sol-gel methods, are characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, UV-visible and XAFS spectroscopy. A combined high-throughput XRD/XAFS study of a 54 samples array, with simultaneous refinement of data of both techniques, has been performed. Molybdenum doping of bismuth vanadate results in a phase transition from monoclinic BiVO4 to tetragonal Bi(V,Mo)O4, both of scheelite type. Both central metals, V5+ and Mo6+, remain in a tetrahedral coordination. UV/visible spectroscopy identifies a linear blue shift as a function of Mo6+ amount.
