Title: Framework Polymorphism and Modular Crystal Structures of Uranyl Vanadates of Divalent Cations: Synthesis and Characterization of M (UO 2)(V 2O 7) ( M = Ca, Sr) and Sr 3(UO 2)(V 2O 7) 2

Abstract

In this work, Uranyl vanadate compounds with divalent cations, M (UO 2)(V 2O 7) ( M = Ca, Sr) and Sr 3(UO 2)(V 2O 7) 2, were synthesized by flux crystal growth, and their crystal structures were solved using single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. Ca(UO 2)V 2O 7 and Sr(UO 2)V 2O 7 were synthesized from reactants with molar ratios M:U:V of 1:1:2 and identical heating conditions, and increasing the M:U:V ratio to 3:1:4 resulted in Sr 3(UO 2)(V 2O 7) 2. Crystallographic data for M(UO2)V2O7 compounds are: a = 7.1774(18) Å, b = 6.7753(17) Å, c = 8.308(2) Å; V = 404.01(18) Å 3; space group Pmn21, Z = 2 for Ca; a = 13.4816(11) Å, b = 7.3218(6) Å, c = 8.4886(7) Å; V = 837.91(12) Å3; space group Pnma, Z = 4 for Sr. Compound Sr 3(UO 2)(V 2O 7) 2 has a = 6.891(3) Å, b = 7.171(3) Å, c = 14.696(6) Å, α = 85.201(4)°, β = 78.003(4)°, γ = 89.188(4)°; V = 707.9(5) Å 3; space group P1, Z = 2. The framework structure of Sr(UO 2)(V 2O 7) is related to that of Pb(UO 2)(V 2O 7) reported previously, while that of Ca(UO 2)(Vmore » 2O 7) has a different topology. The topological polymorphism of the [(UO 2)(V 2O 7)]-type framework may be due to the differing ionic radii of the guest M 2+ cations. Compound Sr 3(UO 2)(V 2O 7) 2 has a modular structure based on two different types of electroneutral layers: [Sr(UO 2)(V 2O 7)] and [Sr 2(V 2O 7)]. This report calculated Structural complexities, and Raman spectra were collected and their peaks were assigned.« less
