Supercritical synthesis and topological analysis of K5U5O17(OH)

Author affiliations

Abstract

High quality single crystals of the monoclinic phase K5U5O17(OH) were synthesized via a hydrothermal method utilizing the supercritical regime of water. The structure of K5U5O17(OH) is isotypic with the Na phase, Na5U5O17(OH), however crystallizes in a slightly different space group due to size effects. K5U5O17(OH) has the same sheet-anion structure as the Na analog, whose topology is analyzed here for the first time. K5U5O17(OH) shows fluorescence typical for uranyl species.
