The formation region of the various types of layered titanium hydrogen phosphate hydrates was investigated. The materials were prepared by hydrothermal methods, treating amorphous titanium phosphate with phosphoric acid (8 to 16M) in the temperature range 175 to 250°C. The materials obtained were:α-Ti(HPO4)2·H2O,γ-Ti(PO4)(H2PO4)·2H2O, and its anhydrous formβ-Ti(PO4)(H2PO4). The structure ofβ-Ti(PO4)(H2PO4) has been determined by Rietveld powder refinement of high resolution neutron diffraction data. The structure is refined in the monoclinic space groupP21/n(No. 14). The unit cell parameters are:a=18.9503(4) Å,b=6.3127(1) Å,c=5.1391(1) Å,β=105.366(2)°;Z=4. The final agreement factors were:Rp=2.9% andRwp=3.8%. The structure ofβ-Ti(PO4)(H2PO4) is built from TiO6octahedra linked together by tertiary phosphate (PO4) and dihydrogen phosphate ((OH)2PO2) tetrahedra. The layers are held together by hydrogen bonds.
