Abstract in another language

An orthorhombic polymorph of titanium oxide (Ti 2 O 3 ) has been synthesized at high pressure–high temperature (HP–HT) conditions. It has been refined in the Pnma space group and the Th 2 S 3 structural type with the unit cell parameters as follows: a = 7.8248(6) Å, b = 2.8507(4) Å, c = 8.0967(3) Å, V = 180.61(1) Å 3 and Z = 4. The samples of Pnma -Ti 2 O 3 were of a golden colour, in contrast to the conventional black corundum-structured Ti 2 O 3 . The structural stability of this polymorph has been examined by simultaneous Raman and x-ray diffraction studies under high pressure over 70 GPa and high temperature over 2200 K. No phase transformations or chemical reactions have been established. The electrical resistivity of Th 2 S 3 -structured Ti 2 O 3 samples showed a semiconducting behaviour and, at ambient conditions, was equal to0.20–0.46 Ω cm. Conventional near-infrared absorption spectroscopy established the absence of energy gaps above 0.25 eV.
