Langbeinite-type mixed-valence (NH4)(H3O)TiIIITiIV(PO4)3

Y.-L. Fu, Z.-W. Xu, J.-L. Ren and S. W. Ng

Abstract: The anionic component of the langbeinite-type title compound, ammonium oxonium dititanium(III,IV) tris(phosphate), is an infinite three-dimensional [Ti2(PO4)3]2- network based on PO4 tetrahedra corner-linked to TiO6 octahedra; the charge-balancing ammonium and oxonium cations occupy the cavities in the network and interact by way of N-H...O and O-H...O hydrogen bonds. The two independent Ti atoms, the ammonium N atom and the oxonium O atom lie on special positions of site symmetry 3.
