The existence of (NH4)2V6016 as an intermediate in the thermal decomposition of NH4V03 to V205 has been confirmed by vibrational spectroscopy, resulting in the following reaction in an open systeml: NH4VO3 1 bar, air, 50-200°C/(1) (NH4)2v6o16 1 bar, air, ca.360°C/(2) V205 The kinetics of reaction (1) was studied by means of Raman spectroscopy, and structural information on NH4V03 and (N114)V60 16 was required to obtain an accurate description of the reaction mechanism2. Information on the site symmetry of an ammonium ion and hydrogen bonding in a crystal can be obtained by considering the infrared spectra of isotopically dilute NH3D+ ions in the lattice at liquid nitrogen temperatures3, especially as the position of hydrogen atoms in (NHO2V6016 could not be determined by X-ray methods.
