NASICON-type Na3V2(PO4)3

Single crystals of the title compound, tris-odium divanadium(III) tris-(orthophosphate), were grown from a self-flux in the system Na(4)P(2)O(7)-NaVP(2)O(7). Na(3)V(2)(PO(4))(3) belongs to the family of NASICON-related structures and is built up from isolated [VO(6)] octa-hedra (3. symmetry) and [PO(4)] tetra-hedra (.2 symmetry) inter-linked via corners to… CONTINUE READING
