Abstract

ZIRCONIUM pyrophosphate is one of a group of isostructural compounds of the Type X+4 P2O7 where X may be zirconium, hafnium, titanium, silicon, tin or uranium1,2. It is cubic (Type K61) with zirconium octahedrally, and phosphorus tetrahedrally, co-ordinated with oxygen. The structure may be compared with that of NaCl (Type B1) by considering the zirconium ions and P2O7 groups to be at sodium and chlorine sites, respectively.
