ChemInform (Impact Factor: 0.74). 01/2012; 14(1):15-20. DOI: 10.1016/j.solidstatesciences.2011.09.004


Our work in metal fluorosulphate chemistry, which was triggered by the discovery of the tavorite-phase of LiFeSO4F, has unveiled many novel Li- and Na-based phases with desirable electrochemical and/or transport properties. Further exploring this rich crystal chemistry, we have synthesized the Na-based magnesium, copper and zinc fluorosulphates, which crystallise in the maxwellite (tavorite-like framework) structure just as their Fe and Co counterparts, which were previously reported. These phases show ionic conductivities in the range of ∼10−7 S cm−1 or ∼10−11 S cm−1 depending upon their synthesis process and no reversible electrochemical activity versus Na.
