Abstract

A growing number of transition metal oxyhydrides have recently been reported, but they are all confined to perovskite-based structures with corner-shared octahedra. Using high pressure synthesis, we have obtained vanadium oxhydrides BaVO3-xHx(0.3less than or equal to}xless than or equal to}0.9) with a 6H-typed hexagonal layer structure consisting of face-shared as well as corner-shared octahedra. In BaVO3-xH0.3, H- anions are located selectively at the face-shared sites, as supported by DFT calculations, while BaVO2.1H0.3 appears to suppress electron hopping along the c axis, making this material a quasi-two-dimensional metal characterized by anomalous temperature dependence and strong antiferromagnetic fluctuations. In contrast, the anion disordered BaVO2.1H0.9 in both hexagonal and cubic forms exhibits a semiconducting behavior. This study offers an opportunity to develop transition metal oxyhydrides having various polyhedral linkages, along with site preference of H/O anions, aimed at finding interesting phenomena.
