Co5V2(P2O7)4 was crystallized by chemical vapour transport using HCl as transport agent. Its crystal structure is isotypic to that of FeII5FeIII2(P2O7)4 and can be regarded as a member of the thortveitite structure family with corrugated layers of metal–oxygen polyhedra extending parallel to (010). Significant occupational disorder between cobalt(II) and vanadium(III) is observed. Four of the five cation sites are occupied by both cobalt and vanadium. The fifth cation site (Co1) is occupied by cobalt only. Sites Co1, M3 and M4 are located on twofold axes. Sites Co1, M2, M3 and M4 show o­cta­hedral coordination by oxygen; M5 has a square-pyramidal environment.

Comment top

Equilibrium investigations in the ternary system CoO/V2O3/P2O5 revealed three new phosphates: CoII3VIII4(PO4)6, CoII3VIII2(P2O7)3, and CoII5VIII2(P2O7)4 (Litterscheid, 2009).

CoII5VIII2(P2O7)4 crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group C2221. The crystal structure is isotopic to that of FeII5FeIII2(P2O7)4 (Malaman et al., 1992). It consists of P2O7 groups and five independent polyhedra [MOn] (n = 5 or 6; Fig. 1). Four of the five cation sites are occupied by both cobalt and vanadium, two lying on a two-fold axis. The fifth cation site (Co1) is occupied by cobalt only. Sites Co1, M3 and M4 are located on two-fold axes. Sites Co1, M2, M3 and M4 show octahedral coordination by oxygen. M5 has a square-pyramidal enviroment. The metal oxygen polyhedra form corrugated layers (stacked along the b-axis). These layers are separated by P2O7 groups (Fig. 3).

The pyrophosphate groups display bridging angles (P1,O5,P3)=134.8 ° and (P2,O9,P4)=135.2 °. The displacement parameters for O5 and O9 do not exhibit any anomalies. The pyrophosphate group (P1P3O7) shows a staggered conformation while (P2P4O7) has an almost eclipsed one (Fig.2).

Allowing for disorder in the crystal structure of Co5V2(P2O7)4 led to significantly improved residuals. This refinement revealed disorder for four metal sites whereas the fifth site Co1 is fully occupied by cobalt (see table). The mean inter-atomic distances d(M-O) for the sites with mixed metal occupancy range from 2.01 Å to 2.17 Å. The average distance d(M-O) = 2.15 Å is found for [Co1O6]. All distances d(M-O) are in agreement with those already known from other cobalt(II) (Krishnamachari and Calvo, 1972) and vanadium(III) (Palkina et al., 1985) phosphates.

The crystal structure of CoII5VIII2(P2O7)4 shows close similarity to the thortveitite structure family (Gossner & Mussgnug, 1929; Cruickshank et al., 1962; Zachariasen et al., 1930). This relation is visualized in Fig. 4 by comparison of the structures of CoII5VIII2(P2O7)4 and Mn2P2O7 (Stefanidis et al., 1984). With respect to the composition of the latter pyrophosphate 5/8 of the Mn2+ sites are occupied by Co2+, 2/8 by V3+ and 1/8 remains empty for charge balance. In contrast to the honeycomb network of [MnO6] octahedra (Fig. 4) in Mn2P2O7 the polyhedra [MOn] in CoII5VIII2(P2O7)4 show lower connectivity. This follows from the presence of octahedral voids and the reduced coordination number for polyhedron [M5O5].

Experimental top

For the synthesis of CoII5VIII2(P2O7)4 a pellet was prepared of thoroughly ground V4(P2O7)3 (82.97 mg) and Co2P2O7 (166.99 mg). This pellet was transferred into a silica tube and sealed under vacuum. Heating at 1173 K for three days led to a single phase product. Pink single-crystals of Co5V2(P2O7)4 were obtained by chemical vapour transport (Binnewies et al., 2012) in a temperature gradient 1273 1173 K for seven days using HCl as transport agent. HCl was obtained by in situ reaction of NH4Cl (2.7 mg) and PtCl2 (19.9 mg). In agreement with chemical vapour transport of other phosphates by HCl(g) as transport agent, we suggest the following transport reaction:

Co5V2(P2O7)4(s) + 16 HCl(g) = 5 CoCl2(g) + VCl2(g) + VCl4(g) + 2 P4O10(g) + 8 H2O(g)

Refinement top

Cobalt/vanadium disorder has been refined assuming full occupancy of metal sites M1 to M5. To maintain charge balance the refinement was constrained to a total of 20 Co2+ and 8 V3+ in the unit cell. The refinement indicated no disorder for site M1, for which in the final refinement cycles full occupancy by cobalt was assumed. Displacement parameters for sites with mixed occupancy Co/V were constrained to be identical for Co2+ and V3+. No hint on racemic twinning was observed.

Even after several hundred refinement cycles the occupancy ratio Co:V for site M2 showed a rather large value of 0.01 for the ratio shift/esd. Since there are no other hints on hidden problems with the crystal structure we think that this indicator just reflects the problems generally encountered when refining occupancy factors for atoms of similar atomic number. Actually, it was quite unexpected that the refinement of the mixed occupancies Co/V proceeded without further problems.

Special details top

Experimental. To reach the desired data resolution with the given experimental setup the image plate had been tilted by 15 degrees. This is also the explanation for the asymmetrie in the upper and lower limits of observed hkl values.

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