Synthesis and Characterization of Rodlike Ammonium Tetrathiomolybdate and its Thermal Decomposition Mechanism
Rodlike ammonium tetrathiomolybdate has been synthesized via ultrasonic assistance using monocrystal ammonium dimolybdate and ammonium sulfide as raw materials. The phase compositions, purity of as-synthesized products were characterized by x-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), laser Raman spectroscopy(LRS). The thermal decomposition mechanism of ammonium tetrathiomolybdate was deduced by thermoanalysis. It is shown that brownish-red rhombic ammonium tetrathiomolybdate crystal with high purity could be obtained at 60°C for 1h under relatively mild conditions.
