Natarajan, Srinivasan and Mandal, Sukhendu and Mahata, Partha and Rao, Vandavasi Koteswara and Ramaswamy, Padmini and Banerjee, Abhishek and Paul, Avijit Kumar and Ramya, KV (2006) The use of hydrothermal methods in the synthesis of novel open-framework materials. In: Journal of Chemical Sciences, 118 (6). pp. 525-536.
The preparation of inorganic compounds, exhibiting open-framework structures, by hydrothermal methods has been presented. To illustrate the efficacy of this approach, few select examples encompassing a wide variety and diversity in the structures have been provided. In all the cases, good quality single crystals were obtained, which were used for the elucidation of the structure. In the first example, simple inorganic network compounds based on phosphite and arsenate are described. In the second example, inorganic–organic hybrid compounds involving phosphite/arsenate along with oxalate units are presented. In the third example, new coordination polymers with interesting structures are given. The examples presented are representative of the type and variety of compounds one can prepare by careful choice of the reaction conditions.
