Synthesis, structural properties and characterisation of self activating Na2Zr(BO3)2

Abstract In this study, the synthesis, characterization and luminescence properties of the self-activated a novels odiumzirkoniumorthoborate (Na2Zr(BO3)2) was reported. This compound has been successfully synthesized by solid state reaction at 1000 °C  among the initial reactants of Na2CO3, ZrO2 and H3BO3 (molar ratio 1: 1: 2). The crystal structure analysis with X-ray powder diffraction showed that the composition crystallized in the orthorhombic system and the composition with the cell parameters of a = 6.7212 Å, b = 11.6591 Å and c = 16.6653 Å, Z = 7, and space group Pmmm (47), The compound in which orthoborate structures are analyzed by FTIR, and a long-luminescent compound by means of PL spectral results.
