New Crystal Data for High Temperature Hexagonal Silver Sulfate

Abstract

Powder data for Ag2SO4 were obtained with a conventional diffractometer equipped with a vacuum heating chamber. The transition from the low-temperature orthorhombic phase occurs over a temperature range of about 415° to 425°C and forms a hexagonal phase plus metallic silver. The lack of a sharp transition must be taken into account in high-temperature X-ray diffraction or DSC/DTA studies. The lattice parameters of the high-temperature hexagonal phase are a = 5.531(3), c = 7.456(5)Å at 440°C, λ = 1.540562 Å. Crystal structure determination was not completed because of uncertainty in the chemical composition. © 1990, Cambridge University Press. All rights reserved.
