In situ site-selective transition metal K-edge XAS: a powerful probe of the transformation of mixed-valence compounds

Abstract : We present herein the first in situ site-selective XAS experiment performed on a proof-of-principle transformation of a mixed-valence compound: the calcination of the K0.1Co4II[Co-III(CN)(6)](2.7)center dot 20H(2)O Prussian Blue analogue (containing Co2+ and Co3+ ions in two different O-h sites) into Co3O4 (containing Co2+ ions in a T-d site and Co3+ in an O-h site). By recording the Co K-edge X-ray absorption spectra using a spectrometer aligned at the Co K beta(1,3) emission line, the evolution of each species was singly monitored from 20 degrees C up to the oxide formation. The experimental spectrum of the Co2+(T-d) and Co3+ (O-h) species in Co3O4 is reported for the first time. Our results demonstrate the possibilities offered by site-selective XAS for the investigation of chemical transformations and the study of materials under working conditions whenever the chemical element of interest is present in several states and/or sites
