Abstract

Mössbauer spectroscopy has been used to investigate the precipitates formed by hydrolysis of 0.1 M solutions of Fe(NO3)3, FeCl3, Fe2SO4)3, and NH4Fe(SO)2 at 90°C. The isomer shifts, electric quadrupole splittings, and nuclear magnetic splittings were used for the qualitative and quantitative identification of the hydrolysis products. Proposals were made concerning the mechanism of formation of the oxides and hydroxyoxides of iron. Hydrolysis in the nitrate and chloride solutions proceeds by the formation of monomers and dimers of iron III) ions, followed by the formation of polymeric species. The polymers formed in the nitrate solution are not presumed to include the nitrate ion in the polymer chain, whereas the polymers formed in the chloride solution contain some chloride ions in place of the hydroxyl ion. The next step in the precipitation process is the formation of oxybridges and the development of α-FeOOH and β-FeOOH structures. This step is followed by loss of water and internal crystallization of α-FeOOH to α-Fe2O3 in nitrate solution or by dissolution of β-FeOOH and growth of α-FeOOH in chloride solution. In sulfate solutions the formation of an FeSO4+ complex suppresses the polymerization process and the formation of oxyhydroxides and oxides. Basic Fe(III) sulfates are formed instead.
