Poster summary

This work is devoted to the study of the synthesis of oxymolybdates by the method of mechanical activation of oxides. The starting oxides Ln2O3 (Ln = La, Nd, Sm) and MoO3 were preheated to remove water and carbon dioxide and then ground to a nanoscale state in a SPEX8000 ball mill. The m/a mixture was then studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) to identify thermal effects associated with phase synthesis. Four to six exothermic peaks were observed in all three systems. The structure of the phases before and after exoeffects was determined by X-ray diffraction. It is shown that the synthesis of oxymolybdates La, Nd, Sm proceeds with the intermediate formation of phases rich in molybdenum oxide, namely scheelite-like Ln2(MoO4)3 (oxide ratio 1:3, for all REE considered) and La2Mo2O9 (1:2, only for lanthanum).
