Non-random distribution of cations in Sn1 − xTixO2(0.0 ≤ x ≤ 1.0): a 119Sn MAS NMR study

Author affiliations


Mixed oxide samples of Sn1 − xTixO2 (0.0 ≤ x ≤ 1.0), prepared by the co-precipitation method followed by heating at variable temperatures, have been investigated by powder X-ray diffraction and 119Sn MAS NMR spectroscopy. Based on powder X-ray diffraction studies, the formation of solid solutions has been observed for samples annealed up to ≈800 °C. Annealing of the samples with 0.2 ≤ x ≤ 0.8 at higher temperatures led to their decomposition into two phases with a rutile structure, one being rich in Sn4+ and the other in Ti4+. Based on the comparison of the 119Sn MAS NMR spectra of the single phase and phase separated compositions, it is inferred that the cation distribution is non-random even for the samples which exhibited single phase formation.
