Electrochemical synthesis and characterization of NaCuO 2

Gerald L. Roberts, Susan M. Kauzlarich

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


NaCuO 2 has been prepared via electrodeposition from a sodium hydroxide/potassium hydroxide melt and characterized by single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction, magnetic susceptibility, and resistivity. Clusters of blue-black plate-like and needle crystals are grown at positive potentials on a platinum anode with a platinum or a zirconium crucible serving as the cathode and a platinum reference electrode. Details of the electrochemical procedure are described, along with a cyclic voltammogram. NaCuO 2 exhibits temperature independent paramagnetism over the temperature range 30 - 300 K. Its room temperature resistivity is greater than 10 6 Ω-cm.
