The room temperature reaction of Cr(OH)3·3H2O with LiOH·H2O results in an X-ray amorphous solid that appears to form through condensation of the hydrogen-bonded Cr(OH)3·3H2O octahedra into edge and corner sharing octahedra. The reaction is explained in terms of analogous sol-gel chemistry of chromium(III). The X-ray amorphous product can be decomposed to yield LiCrO2 with surface area higher than conventional syntheses.
