The new oxofluoride Cu7(TeO3)6F2 has been synthesized by hydrothermal synthesis. It crystallizes in the triclinic system, space group P1. The crystal structure constitutes a Cu-O framework with channels extending along [001] where the F(-) ions and the stereochemically active lone-pairs on Te(4+) are located. From magnetic susceptibility, specific heat, and Raman scattering measurements we find evidence that the magnetic degrees of freedom of the Cu-O-Cu segments in Cu7(TeO3)6F2 lead to a mixed…

Evidence for an unconventional magnetic instability in the spin-tetrahedra system Cu(2)Te(2)O(5)Br(2).
The phase transition observed in the Cl system is consistent with 3D antiferromagnetic ordering, but the phase transition at T(o) = 11.4 K in the Br system has several unusual features, and an explanation in terms of weakly coupled tetrahedra with a singlet-triplet gap and low-lying singlets is proposed.
