Single crystals of Co3(PO4)2·4H2O, tricobalt(II) bis­[ortho­phosphate(V)] tetra­hydrate, were obtained under hydro­thermal conditions. The title compound is isotypic with its zinc analogue Zn3(PO4)2·4H2O (mineral name hopeite) and contains two independent Co2+ cations. One Co2+ cation exhibits a slightly distorted tetra­hedral coordination, while the second, located on a mirror plane, has a distorted octa­hedral coordination environment. The tetra­hedrally coordinated Co2+ is bonded to four O atoms of four PO43− anions, whereas the six-coordinate Co2+ is cis-bonded to two phosphate groups and to four O atoms of four water mol­ecules (two of which are located on mirror planes), forming a framework structure. In addition, hydrogen bonds of the type O—H⋯O are present throughout the crystal structure.

The synthesis and investigation of open-framework transition-metal phosphates has been a growing area of research over recent times. This is not only because of the rich structural chemistry involved, but is also due to many potential applications such as for catalysis, as alternatives for zeolites in separation and storage applications and, in particular, as potential gas storage materials (Kuzicki et al., 2001; Chen et al., 2006; Jiang & Gao, 2007; Cheetham et al., 1999). For example, microporous nickel phosphates incorporating 24-membered rings such as VSB-5 (Versailles/Santa Barbara-5) have been demonstrated to exhibit hydrogen uptake at low temperatures (Forster et al., 2003). Over the past couple of decades, a considerable number of metal phosphates/phosphites with open molecular architectures have also been synthesized incorporating organic units (see, for example: Jiang et al., 2001) and ionic liquids (Cooper et al., 2004) as structure-directing agents, often under hydrothermal or solvothermal conditions. One of the best known families of this type consists of zinc phosphate structures; individual materials of this type can exist as one dimensional (chain and ladder), two dimensional (layer) and three dimensional framework arrangements (Choudhury et al., 2000).

We are currently investigating the synthesis of a variety of similar functional materials through templation effects under hydrothermal conditions. The title compound, Co3(PO4)2.4H2O, (I), and the related compound Co3(PO4)2.H2O (Lee et al., 2008) were synthesized and structurally characterized as a part of these studies.

The structure of (I) is isotypic with the mineral hopeite, Zn3(PO4)2.4H2O (Liebau, 1965) and contains two different Co2+ centres bridged by orthophosphate anions (Fig. 1). The coordination environment of Co1 is slightly distorted tetrahedral while that of Co2 is close to octahedral (Table 1). Co1 is bonded to the O atoms of four different phosphate ligands, while Co2 is bonded to the O atoms of two orthophosphate ligands in a cis-arrangement. The other coordination sites are occupied by O atoms of the water ligands. A mirror plane passes through Co2 and two of the water molecules (O4 and O5). This coordination geometry leads to the formation of a three-dimensional framework (Fig. 2). A number of hydrogen bonding interactions O—H···O are present and stabilize the structure (Table 2).

Besides crystals of the title compound, crystals of Co3(PO4)2.H2O (Lee et al., 2008) have also been obtained under hydrothermal conditions. For reviews, synthesis, structures and applications of open framework structures with different cations and/or structure directing molecules, see: Kuzicki et al. (2001); Chen et al. (2006); Jiang & Gao (2007); Cheetham et al. (1999); Forster et al. (2003); Jiang et al. (2001); Cooper et al. (2004); Choudhury et al. (2000). The structure of the isotypic mineral hopeite was first described by Liebau (1965).

Experimental top

H3PO4 (85%wt, 2.3 g, 20 mmol) was added to an aqueous solution (20 ml) of Co(NO3)2.6H2O (2.6 g, 9 mmol) with stirring for 30 min and the ionic liquid, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide (2.7 g, 9 mmol), was added dropwise under continuous stirring. The mixture was transferred to a teflon-coated autoclave, heated at 453 K for 3 d and then allowed to cool slowly. A mixture of plate-like and prismatic purple crystals had formed and was filtered off. The crystals were washed with water, dried under vacuum and were manually separated under a microscope. The yields were approximately 0.4 g of the plate-like crystals of the compound Co3(PO4)2.H2O (Lee et al., 2008) and and 0.2 g of the prismatic crystals of compound (I).

Refinement top

Water H atoms were located in difference Fourier maps and were refined with Uiso(H) values fixed at 1.5Ueq of the parent O atoms. O—H bond length restraints of 0.89 (1) Å were also employed. The highest peak and the deepest hole in the final Fourier map are located 0.49 Å from Co1 and 0.33 Å from P2, respectively.

Experimental. The crystal was coated in Exxon Paratone N hydrocarbon oil and mounted on a thin mohair fibre attached to a copper pin. Upon mounting on the diffractometer, the crystal was quenched to 150(K) under a cold nitrogen gas stream supplied by an Oxford Cryosystems Cryostream and data were collected at this temperature.

Geometry. All esds (except the esd in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell esds are taken into account individually in the estimation of esds in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between esds in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell esds is used for estimating esds involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
