Abstract

We report a low temperature synthesis of layered $Na_{0.20}CoO_2$ and $K_{0.44}CoO_2$ phases from NaOH and KOH fluxes at 400°C. These layered oxides are employed to prepare hexagonal $HCoO_2$, $Li_xCoO_2$ and Delafossite $AgCoO_2$ phases by ion exchange method. The resulting oxides were characterised by powder X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, SEM and EDX analysis. Final compositions of all these oxides are obtained from chemical analysis of elements present. $Na_{0.20}CoO_2$ oxide exhibits insulating to metal like behaviour, whereas $AgCoO_2$ is semiconducting.
