A microwave-assisted route for the solid-state synthesis of lead pyrophosphate, Pb2P2O7
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, we have developed a new method based on microwave heating for the preparation of lead pyrophosphate compound, Pb2P2O7. The favoring of microwave heating as synthesis technique is based on the fact being much faster, cleaner and economical than conventional techniques. By following this new route, the lead pyrophosphate, Pb2P2O7, was obtained as a pure phase. The products were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform IR (FTIR) spectroscopic techniques. Comparing the experimental XRD and FTIR data of the synthesized products with the reported literature data has revealed that there was mutually an excellent agreement.
