ABSTRACT

The attractive properties of layered inorganic materials, which make them suitable for numerous applications in chemical industries and life sciences, originated from their crystalline framework structures. Here, we report a new layered germanate PKU-21, which was prepared by the hydrothermal synthesis method using 2-propanolamine (MIPA) as the structure-directing agent. The structure of PKU-21 was determined from synchrotron single-crystal X-ray diffraction and synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction data. It reveals a complicated framework structure containing 18 unique Ge atoms in the asymmetric unit. PKU-21 is the first layered germanate built from both Ge
