Multiferroic materials exhibit two or more ferroic orders and have potential applications as multifunctional materials in the electronics industry. A coupling of ferroelectricity and ferromagnetism is hereby particularly promising. We show that the synthetic melanostibite mineral Mn2 FeSbO6 (R3‾ space group) with ilmenite-type structure exhibits cation(More)
CoFe2O4 particles of 16 nm and 17 nm embedded in a silica matrix have been prepared through the hydrothermal method and the sol-gel method, respectively. From neutron powder diffraction a cation distribution of (Fe(0.72)Co(0.28))[Fe(1.28)Co(0.72)]O4 has been determined for Co-ferrite particles of 17 nm, which is in agreement with its particle size taking(More)
Five novel metal organic frameworks were obtained by hydro-solvothermal reactions using the hexafluorisopropylidenebis(benzoic) acid (H2hfipbb) as linker and Co(II) or Mn(II) ions as connectors. [Co2(Hhfipbb)(TEA)], compound 1 (TEA = triethanolamine trianion) with a three-dimensional (3D) framework, and a tpu net; [Co1.5(hfipbb)2]·HN(CH2CH3)3 and(More)
Cation ordering in ABO3 perovskites adds to their chemical variety and can lead to properties such as ferrimagnetism and magnetoresistance in Sr2 FeMoO6 . Through high-pressure and high-temperature synthesis, a new type of "double double perovskite" structure has been discovered in the family MnRMnSbO6 (R=La, Pr, Nd, Sm). This tetragonal structure has a 1:1(More)
Two new cation-ordered polymorphs of Mn2ScSbO6 have been synthesised at high-pressure. At 5.5 GPa and 1523 K Mn2ScSbO6 crystallizes in the Ni3TeO6-type structure with the polar R3 space group and cell parameters a = 5.3419 (5) Å and c = 14.0603 (2) Å. Below TC = 42.0 K it exhibits ferrimagnetic order with a net magnetization of 0.6μB arising from unusual(More)
The preparation of materials with structures composed of multiple metal cations that occupy specific sites is challenging owing to the difficulty of simultaneously addressing the incorporation of different elements at desired precise positions. We report how it is possible to use a metal-organic framework (MOF) built with a rod-shaped inorganic secondary(More)
The use of nitrite sodalite as a precursor to prepare new blue ultramarine analogs has been investigated. The encapsulation of the chromophores inside of beta cages was achieved by heating the nitrite sodalite precursor with a mixture of sodium carbonate, sulfur, and a reducing agent at about 1000 K under airtight conditions. The obtained new blue(More)
Single domain superparamagnetic ferrite nanoparticles with the composition MFe2O4 (M = Fe, Co, Zn) have been prepared by thermal decomposition of metal acetylacetonates in diphenyl ether or dibenzyl ether, using oleic acid in the presence of oleylamine as a stabilizing agent. The Fe, Co and Zn ferrite nanoparticles are monodisperse with diameters of 4.9,(More)
NiFe₂O₄ and ZnFe₂O₄ nanoparticles have been prepared encased in the MCM (Mobile Composition of Matter) type matrix. Their magnetic behavior has been studied and compared with that corresponding to particles of the same composition and of a similar size (prepared and embedded in amorphous silica or as bare particles). This study has allowed elucidation of(More)
The perovskite polymorph of Mn(2)CrSbO(6) compound has been synthesized at 8 GPa and 1473 K. It crystallizes in the monoclinic P21/n space group with cell parameters a = 5.2180 (2) Å, b = 5.3710(2) Å, c = 7.5874(1) Å and β = 90.36(1)°. Magnetic susceptibility and magnetization measurements show the simultaneous antiferromagnetic ordering of Mn(2+) and(More)
