Germanophosphates, in comparison with other metal phosphates, have been less studied but potentially exhibit more diverse structural chemistry with wide applications. Herein we applied a hydro-/solvo-fluorothermal route to make use of both the "tailor effect" of fluoride for the formation of low dimensional anionic clusters and the presence of alkali(More)
Anhydrous compounds are crucially important for many technological applications, such as achieving high performance in lithium/sodium cells, but are often challenging to synthesize under hydrothermal conditions. Herein we report that a modified solvo-/hydro-fluorothermal method with fluoride-rich and water-deficient condition is highly effective for(More)
Structural assembly from phosphate to germanophosphate by applying germanate as a binder has been achieved. Two isotypic porous compounds, K3[M(II)4(HPO4)2][Ge2O(OH)(PO4)4]·xH2O (M(II) = Fe, Cd; x = 2 for Fe and 3 for Cd, denoted as KFeGePO-1 and KCdGePO-1, respectively), contain a known transition-metal phosphate (TMPO) layer, (∞)(2){[M2(HPO4)3]2–}, which(More)
The "tailor effect" of fluoride, exclusively as a terminal rather than a bridge, was applied successfully to design low-dimensional structures in the system of transition metal germanophosphates for the first time. Two series of new compounds with low-dimensional structures are reported herein. K[M(II)Ge(OH)2(H0.5PO4)2] (M = Fe, Co) possess flat layered(More)
The title compound, LiMn(H(2)O)(2)[BP(2)O(8)]·H(2)O, is built up of an open framework of helical borophosphate ribbons inter-connected by MnO(4)(H(2)O)(2) octa-hedra, forming one-dimensional channels along [001] occupied by Li(+) cations and disordered H(2)O mol-ecules (site occupancy 0.5). The Li cations reside in two partially occupied sites [occupancies(More)
