Crystallization of molybdenum and lithium double phosphates

We have synthesized a series of lithium-containing double phosphates of molybdenum: α′-, α-, γ-, β′-, β-Li3MO2(PO4)3, LiMo2(PO4)3, LiMoP2O7. Using spectroscopic methods, we have established the local environment of Mo3+, Mo4+. We have determined the conductivity of the synthesized double phosphates. A characteristic features of the structure of double phosphates of molybdenum is a significant lowering of the symmetry of the MO6 octahedron, which affects both the spectroscopic characteristics and the conductivity. We have studied the composition-structure-property relationship for molybdenum-containing representatives of the series {M2P3O12}3− and {MP2O7}1−. The presence of highly polarized, distorted MoO6 octahedra in the structure of LiMoP2O7 is the reason for the high electrical conductivity of the material.
