Abstract

Nanoporous phospho-tungstate organic-inorganic hybrid materials have been synthesized from sodium tungstate and mono-n-dodecyl phosphate (MDP), which was used as both surfactant and phosphorus precursor. These hybrid materials were thoroughly characterized by N2 adsorption, elemental analysis, powder XRD, FTIR, Raman, TG, TEM and XPS and possess lamellar structures with interlayer spacings of 3.2 nm. A plausible method for formation of hybrid materials comprised of lacunary Keggin anions and micelles of surfactants is proposed.
