The interplay between covalency and magnetism is non-trivial and can be harnessed for designing new functional magnetic materials. Based on a survey using density functional calculations, we show that $TM\unicode{x2013}O$ bond covalency can increase the total magnetic moment of spinel compounds of $TMFe_2O_4$ composition ($TM = V-Ni, Nb-Pd$) which are isomorphic to the much-researched magnetite. Accordingly, $PdFe_2O_4$ was found to exhibit the highest magnetic moment of 7.809 ${\mu}_B$ per…

Stability Trends in Mono-Metallic 3d Layered Double Hydroxides

Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) constitute a unique group of 2D materials that can deliver exceptional catalytic, optical, and electronic performance. However, they usually suffer from low stability

It is demonstrated that in an oxygen poor environment, Gd and Yb dopants reside in the Na layer while in a oxygen rich environment these dopants replace a Co in CoO2 layer, demonstrating how thermoelectric performance critically depends on the synthesis environment that must be fine-tuned for achieving any thermoelectedric enhancement.

Exceptionally high saturation magnetisation in Eu-doped magnetite stabilised by spin-orbit interaction.

It is demonstrated that Eu, which is most stable when doped at the tetrahedral site, adapts a spin almost opposite the substituted Fe, which exhibits a maximum saturation magnetisation which is significantly larger than that of undoped magnetite.

Photocatalytic Degradation of Cefixime Trihydrate by Bismuth Ferrite Nanoparticles

Degradation of cefixime trihydrate was investigated under sunlight to evaluate the photocatalytic properties of the bismuth ferrite nanoparticles, and it was found that the BFO nanoparticles followed first-order degradation kinetics in solar irradiation in the degradation of antibiotic, cefxime triHydrate.



Introduction to Magnetic Oxides

Oxides are ubiquitous. The Earth’s crust and mantle are largely made up of compounds of metal cations and oxygen anions. Looking at the composition of the crust in Figure 1.1, we see that oxygen is
