Abstract

Ionothermal synthesis using a deep eutectic solvent has been used for the first time to prepare a borate-containing material. The metallophosphate-borate compound crystallises in chiral space group I222. Two different alkyl ammonium cations derived from the ionic liquid have distinct template effects on the formation of cobalt phosphate layers and hydrophobic borate channels.
