A specific preparation procedure makes possible to obtain in one shot structural and compositional characterization of a buried interface at the nanometre scale using a micrometre scale probe. A specific example based on dispersive mu-XAS, micro X-ray absorption spectroscopy, shows that nearly-atomic scale changes in local structure, composition, as well as(More)
The MnNb(2)O(6)-FeNb(2)O(6) solid solution has been investigated by Fe-K- and Mn-K-edge X-ray absorption (XANES and EXAFS), and Mossbauer spectroscopy. The first-shell M-O bond lengths deduced from EXAFS show a fairly small compositional dependence. A degree of static disorder, which increases with increasing manganese content, is clearly seen by the loss(More)
Temperature and composition dependences of the I41/amd → [Formula: see text] phase transition in the Mg x Cu1 - x Cr2O4 spinel solid solution, due to the melting of the cooperative Jahn-Teller distortion, have been studied by means of single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Crystals with x = 0, 0.10, 0.18, 0.43, 0.46, 0.53, 1 were grown by flux decomposition(More)
Sepiolite is studied as sorbent for removal of Fluoroquinolone (FQ) contaminants from water. Marbofloxacin (MAR) and Enrofloxacin (ENR) were chosen as model FQs since they are the two most commonly employed veterinary FQs in livestock farming in northern Italy. Adsorption experiments on two sepiolites (SP-1 and SSE16) were carried out in tap water at pH 7.5(More)
