    ABSTRACT: Two novel indium silicates, K5In3Si7O21 (1) and K4In2Si8O21 (2), have been synthesized by a flux-growth method and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure of 1 consists of siebener single chains of corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra running along the b axis linked via corner-sharing by In2O9 face-sharing octahedral dimers and InO5 trigonal bipyramids to form a 3D framework. The structure of 2 consists of a 3D silicate framework containing 6- and 14-ring channels. InO5 square pyramids are located within the 14-ring channels sharing corners with the silicate framework. The solid-state 29Si MAS NMR spectrum of compound 1 was recorded; it shows the influence of the indium atoms in the second coordination sphere of the silicon on the chemical shift. Crystal data: 1, orthorhombic, Pna21 (No. 33), a = 12.4914(3) A, b = 16.8849(3) A, c = 10.2275(2) A, V = 2157.1(1) A3 and Z = 4; 2, monoclinic, P21/n (No. 14), a = 8.4041(3) A, b = 11.4919(4) A, c = 10.4841(3) A, beta = 90.478(2) degrees , V = 1012.5(1) A3 and Z = 2.

    ABSTRACT: A new cobalt-indium silicate, Rb6(InCo)2(Si9O26), has been synthesized via a high-temperature, high-pressure hydrothermal method and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. It crystallizes in the noncentrosymmetric orthorhombic space group Aba2 (No. 41) with a = 20.779(1) A, b = 12.0944(6) A, c = 10.7761(5) A, V =2708.1(2) A(3), and Z = 4. The structure consists of 20-membered-ring silicate single layers of corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra interconnected by dimers of edge-sharing CoO4 tetrahedra and InO6 octahedra into a 3D framework. The Si:O ratio for the title compound is the lowest among the known single-layer silicates. Magnetic susceptibility confirms the divalent state of the cobalt ion. The powder sample has a second-harmonic-generation signal, confirming the absence of a center of symmetry in the structure.

    ABSTRACT: A novel indium silicate, Rb3In(H2O)Si5O13, has been synthesized using a high-temperature, high-pressure hydrothermal method and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure consists of five-membered rings of corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra connected via corner sharing to four adjacent five-membered rings to form a 3D silicate framework that belongs to the CdSO4 topological type. The InO6 octahedron shares five of its corners with five different SiO4 tetrahedra to form a 3D frame-work that delimits two types of channels to accommodate the rubidium cations. The sixth corner of InO6 is coordinated H2O. The structure is related to that of the titanium silicate ETS-10, and these are the only two metal silicates that have the CdSO4-topological-type structure. In addition, the crystal of Rb3In(H2O)Si5O13 shows an intense second harmonic generation signal. Crystal data: H2Rb3InSi5O14, monoclinic, space group Cc (No. 9), a = 9.0697(5) A, b = 11.5456(6) A, c = 13.9266(8) A, beta = 102.300(1) degrees, V = 1424.8(1) A3, and Z = 4.

    ABSTRACT: Four two-dimensional vanadyl phosphates, (H3dien)[(VOPO4)2(OH)]·H2O (dien = diethylenetriamine) (1), (H2dach)1.5[(VOPO4)2(OH)]·2H2O (dach = 1,4-diaminocyclohexane) (2), (H2tmdpp)[V3O4(OH)(PO4)2]·3H2O (tmdpp = 4,4‘-trimethylenedipiperidine) (3), and (H2tmdpp)(H1.5tmdpp)K0.5[V5O7(H2O)2(PO4)4]·H2O (4), with clearly distinct but orderly increasing layer separations from 7.75 to 18.07 Å, have been prepared via hydrothermal routes and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, and magnetic susceptibility or ion-exchange studies. The series possesses three unique layer topologies, but all contain VIVO5 square pyramid, PO4 tetrahedron, discrete dimers of V−O polyhedra, and 3-, 4-, 5-, and 8-membered rings. Structures 1 and 2 are VIV species, having the same layer topology but different amine cations. Compounds 3 and 4 are VIV/VV mixed valent, holding the same amine templates in varied inclined angles. Being similar to 1 and 2, the layer of 3 contains extra vanadate groups. In contrast, the layers in 4 are distinct and contain VVO6 and VIVO6 octahedra besides VIVO5 square pyramid. It exhibits an interlayer d-spacing of 18.07 Å, the largest propped up by noncovalent intermediates between VPO layers. With an extremely low density of 1.71 g·cm-3, compound 4 also demonstrates the lightest layered material ever prepared in the V/P/O system. Structural relationship, template effect, factors controlling layer gaps, ion exchange, thermal stability, and magnetic properties are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Na5InSi4O12 has been synthesized by a high-temperature, high-pressure hydrothermal method and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and solid-state NMR spectroscopy. It is isotypic to Na5ScSi4O12. The structure consists of 12-membered single rings of corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra linked together via corner sharing by single InO6 octahedra to form a 3-D framework that delimits two types of channels along the c-axis. There are six independent sodium sites. The Na atoms within the 12-ring channels are immobile and the Na atoms within 7-ring channels are highly mobile. The 29Si MAS NMR exhibits one Q3 and one Q4 resonance, each of which is split into two peaks because of inequivalent chemical environments caused by partially occupied Na sites in the 7-ring channels. Na ion conductivity measurements on a pressed pellet of the title compound were performed. The Arrhenius plot of dc conductivity shows a change in slope near 220 °C. We attribute this to the activation of the Na site that is situated between 7-ring channels and may serve as a connecting link between the channels. Crystal data: trigonal, space group R-3c (No. 167), a = 21.7158(9) Å, c = 12.4479(7) Å, and Z = 18.

    ABSTRACT: A new indium(III) silicate, K(2)In(OH)(Si(4)O(10)), has been synthesized by a high-temperature, high-pressure hydrothermal method. It crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2(1)/m (No. 11) with a = 11.410(1) A, b = 8.373(1) A, c = 11.611(1) A, beta = 112.201(2) degrees, and Z = 4. The structure, which is analogous to that of K(2)CuSi(4)O(10), consists of unbranched vierer 4-fold chains of corner-sharing SiO(4) tetrahedra running along the b axis linked together via corner sharing by chains of trans-corner-sharing InO(4)(OH)(2) octahedra to form a 3-D framework which delimits 8-ring and 6-ring channels to accommodate K(+) cations. The presence of hydroxyl groups is confirmed by IR spectroscopy. The (29)Si MAS NMR exhibits four resonances at -88.6, -90.1, -97.4, and -98.2 ppm corresponding to four distinct crystallographic Si sites. A (1)H --> (29)Si CP/MAS NMR experiment was performed to assign the four resonances.

    ABSTRACT: A mixed-valence vanadium phosphate, NH(4)[(V(2)O(3))(2)(4,4'-bpy)(2)(H(2)PO(4))(PO(4))(2)].0.5H(2)O, has been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions and structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. It crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/c (No. 15) with a = 12.6354(8) A, b = 9.9786(6) A, c = 23.369(1) A, beta = 92.713(1) degrees, and Z = 4 with R(1) = 0.0389. The structure consists of dimers of edge-sharing vanadium(IV,V) octahedra that are connected by corner-sharing phosphate tetrahedra to form layers in the ab-plane, which are further linked through 4,4'-bipyridine pillars to generate a 3-D framework. Magnetic susceptibility confirms the valence of the vanadium atoms. The (31)P MAS NMR spectrum shows a resonance centered at 80 ppm with a shoulder at ca. 83 ppm in an intensity ratio close to 1:2, which correspond to two distinct P sites. The observed large downfield (31)P NMR shifts can be ascribed to magnetic exchange coupling involving phosphorus atoms. The unpaired electron spin density at the phosphorus nucleus was determined from variable-temperature (31)P NMR spectra. The (1)H MAS NMR spectrum was fitted to six components in accordance with the structure as determined from X-ray diffraction.
