Title: Insertion of Ag atoms into layered MoO{sub 3} via a template route

Abstract

Graphical abstract: PVP–Ag{sup +} complex self-assembled with inorganic (Mo{sub x}O{sub y}){sub ∞}{sup n−} chains into a layered hybrid, in which the PVP–Ag complex was intercalated between the (Mo{sub x}O{sub y}){sub ∞}{sup n−} layers. Calcinations of this hybrid at 500 °C lead to formation of Ag/MoO{sub 3} nanohybrid. By this method we have successfully inserted Ag atoms into the semiconductor MoO{sub 3} lattice. Display Omitted Highlights: ► We fabricated a PVP–Ag/polyoxomolybdate layered hybrid via in situ self-assembly. ► The PVP–Ag complex has been inserted between the molybdenum oxide layers. ► This layered hybrid transformed into Ag/MoO{sub 3} nanocomposite after calcinations. ► HR-TEM images show that Ag atoms of about 1 nm have been inserted in the MoO{sub 3} layers. -- Abstract: We report insertion of Ag atoms into layered MoO{sub 3} via an in situ template route.
