Electrochemical Crystal Growth in the Cesium Molybdate-Molybdenum Trioxide System
A systematic investigation of crystal growth in the cesium molybdate/molybdenum trioxide system is described. A previously unknown blue cesium molybdenum bronze phase has been prepared as well as the known red bronze, Cs0.33MoO3, and high-quality crystals of the Magneli-phase compound, γ-Mo4O11. This new blue bronze, with empirical formula, Cs0.19MoO2.85, is monoclinic with cell constants, a = 19.198(4) Å, b = 5.519(2) Å, c = 12.213(2) Å, and β = 119.44(2)°. Measurements of the susceptibility and of the resistivity vs temperature are reported. As is the case for other alkali molybdenum bronzes, the product formed is determined by the molar ratio of alkali molybdate to molybdenum trioxide and the melt temperature.
