Abstrakt

Cu2Mo10O30 was prepared as a monophasic material comprising dark blue platy crystals by reacting Cu with MoO3 under argon at 550 ​°C. Single-crystal X-ray diffractometry showed that Cu2Mo10O30 is a stoichiometric compound that crystallizes with a monoclinic (C2/c) cell: a ​= ​16.6359(6); b ​= ​9.3112(3); c ​= ​27.1597(9) Å; β ​= ​102.621(3)° (Z ​= ​8). Electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy revealed that Cu2Mo10O30 displays mixed-valency; (CuI 2−xCuII x)(MoV 2+xMoVI 8−x)O30 (0 ​≪ ​x ​≤ ​2). Differential scanning calorimetry and in situ high-temperature powder X-ray diffractometry showed that Cu2Mo10O30 decomposes ≳550 ​°C under an inert atmosphere. Dark blue acicular crystals of CuMo9O26 were discovered as a side-product in materials prepared inside evacuated glass ampoules at 500 ​°C. Single-crystal X-ray diffractometry showed these to crystallize with an orthorhombic (Pmmn) cell: a ​= ​3.74190(10); b ​= ​26.4941(4); c ​= ​9.15300(10) Å; (Z ​= ​2). Rietveld refinement of the powder X-ray diffraction data for these materials revealed Cu2Mo10O30 with minor CuMo9O26 and ‘Cu0.1MoO3’.
