Utilizing an In Situ Reduction in the Synthesis of BaMoOF5
A new molybdenum containing oxyfluoride, BaMoOF5, space group Cmcm with lattice parameters of a = 7.1445(3), b = 6.7894(3), c = 10.1969(4), was synthesized via a mild hydrothermal crystal growth method. The synthesis resulted in high-quality single crystals of the title material, which were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure is discussed in detail.
A new Mo(V) oxyfluoride, BaMoOF5, was synthesized via a mild hydrothermal route that included an in-situ reduction step to reduce molybdenum from a starting oxidation state of 6+ to 5+.
