Letter

BiPO4 has been claimed for several aspects of technical application, including catalysis [1, 2], orthophosphate ion sensing by means of a quartz-crystal microbalance [3], as well as coprecipitation and separation of radioactive actinides [4, 5]. Especially for catalysis BiPO4 is a promising candidate and has been used, e.g., for a reduction of butyraldehyde to n-butanol [6]. Moreover, BiPO4 has been denoted as a host lattice for incorporation and luminescence of rare-earth ions [7, 8]. Structurally, BiPO4 has been described with three different modifications, whereof the monazite-type structure is thermodynamically most favored [9, 10, 11]. On the nanoscale, rod- or wire-type BiPO4 has been recently synthesized via sonochemical [12] and CVD [13] methods. Interestingly, spherical shapes with uniform size and a low degree of agglomeration have not been addressed, yet.

In this study, a polyol-mediated synthesis has applied to realize BiPO4nanocrystals. The underlying concept of...
