Two series of nanocrystalline powders of PrCo1 - x Fe x O3 (x = 0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7 and 0.9) of high purity were obtained by sol-gel citrate method at 700 and 800 °C. The formation of continuous solid solution with an orthorhombic perovskite structure (sp. group Pbnm) was observed. A peculiarity of the PrCo1 - x Fe x O3 solid solution is the lattice(More)
Single-phase mixed aluminates-titanates Pr1-x Sr x Al1-x Ti x O3 (x = 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7) with rhombohedral perovskite structure were prepared by solid-state reaction technique at 1823-1873 K. Morphotropic rhombohedral-to-cubic phase transition in Pr1-x Sr x Al1-x Ti x O3 series is predicted to occur at x = 0.88. The temperature-induced structural(More)
Sn(20.5)As(22)I(8), a new cationic clathrate, has been prepared by using an ampoule technique. According to the X-ray powder diffraction data, it crystallizes in the face-centered cubic space group F23 or Fm(-)3 with a unit-cell parameter of a=22.1837(4) A. Single-crystal X-ray data allowed solution of the crystal structure in the subcell with a unit-cell(More)
The crystal structures of Mg11Rh18B8 and Mg3Rh5B3 have been investigated by using single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Mg11Rh18B8: space group P4/mbm; a=17.9949(7), c=2.9271(1) Å; Z=2. Mg3Rh5B3: space group Pmma; a=8.450(2), b=2.8644(6), c=11.602(2) Å; Z=2. Both crystal structures are characterized by trigonal prismatic coordination of the boron atoms by(More)
A first rare-earth phosphide silicide Ce4(P(1-x)Si(x))(3-z) and its analogues with La, Pr, and Nd were synthesized and characterized. The compounds crystallize in the anti-Th3P4 structure type. The cerium compound shows a mixed occupation of the 12a site with Si and P and possesses a wide homogeneity range with respect to x and z variation. The electronic(More)
