[Bi.sub.12]Ge[O.sub.20] powders were synthesized by the polymeric precursor method using bismuth oxide ([Bi.sub.2][O.sub.3]; VETEC, 3N) and germanium oxide (Ge[O.sub.2;] Alfa Aesar, 5N).
The 42.5 kilograms of 86-percent enriched white germanium oxide powder required for the project is valued at 4 million dollars and was transported from a Russian enrichment facility to a secure underground ORNL facility in a specially designed container.
They also address dynamical heterogeneities in simulated liquid germanium oxide, microwave-assisted synthesis of layered double hydroxides, and nanotechnology applications of alkaline earth metal phosphonates.
Zou, chemist Michael O'Keeffe of Arizona State University in Tempe, and their colleagues had been synthesizing porous crystals made with germanium oxide. The basic units of these molecular structures contain a germanium atom bound to four or six oxygen atoms to make a tetrahedron or an octahedron, respectively.
