Thorium divanadate dihydrate, Th(V2O7)(H2O)2

Abstract : The title compound, Th(V(2)O(7))(H(2)O)(2), was synthesized by a hydro-thermal reaction. The crystal structure consists of ThO(7)(OH(2))(2) tricapped trigonal prisms that share edges, forming [ThO(5)(OH(2))(2)](n) chains along [010]. The edge-sharing ThO(7)(OH(2))(2) polyhedra share one edge and five vertices with the V(2)O(7) divanadate anions having a nearly ecliptic conformation parallel to [001]. This results in an open framework with the water mol-ecules located in channels. O-H⋯O hydrogen bonding between water molecules and framework O atoms is observed. Bond-valence-sum calculations are in good agreement with the chemical formula of the title compound.
