|Abstract: ||The layered sodium cobaltates -NaxCoO2 show low electrical conductivity and large thermopower. These features are required for candidate materials in thermoelectric applications. Superconductive sodium cobalt oxyhydrates can be obtained by topotactic transformation of -NaxCoO2 via oxidative de-intercalation and hydration. This chapter presents the synthesis of -Na0.7CoO2 in the form of sol-gel bulk, films, nanotubules and submicron tubules. Materials characterization of -NaxCoO2 and cobalt oxyhydrates will be also presented. According to thermopower analysis, band narrowing is observed when -Na0.7CoO2 is transformed to potassium sodium cobaltoxyhydrates. According to the Co K-edge x-ray absorption spectra, the Co oxidation number for bi-layer hydrate Na0.33K0.02(H2O)1.33CoO2 is higher than that of mono-layer hydrate Na0.07K0.21 (H2O)0.63CoO2 with a chemical shift of 3.5 eV, which is in sharp contrast with Co K-edge x-ray absorption spectroscopy and cerimetric titration results for Nax(H2O)yCoO2, where there is essentially no difference of the oxidation number of Co between bi-layer and mono-layer sodium cobalt oxyhydrates.|
