Title: Synchrotron X-ray diffraction study of double perovskites Sr 2 RNbO 6 ( R = Sm, Gd, Dy, Ho, Y, Tm, and Lu)

Abstract

A series of double-perovskite oxides, Sr 2RNbO 6(R= Sm, Gd, Dy, Ho, Y, Tm, and Lu) were prepared and their crystal structure and powder diffraction reference patterns were determined using the Rietveld analysis technique. The crystal structure of each of the Sr 2RNbO 6phase is reported in this paper. TheR= Gd, Ho, and Lu samples were studied using synchrotron radiation, whileR= Sm, Dy, Y, and Tm samples were studied using laboratory X-ray diffraction. Members of Sr 2RNbO 6are monoclinic with a space group ofP2 1/nand are isostructural with each other. Following the trend of “lanthanide contraction”, fromR= Sm to Lu, the lattice parameters “a” of these compounds decreases from 5.84672(10) to 5.78100(3) Å,bfrom 5.93192(13) to 5.80977(3) Å,cfrom 8.3142(2) to 8.18957(5) Å, andVdecreases from 288.355(11) to 275.057(2) Å 3. In this double-perovskite series, theR 3+and Nb 5+ions are structurally ordered. The average Nb–O bond length is nearly constant, while the averageR–O bond length decreases with the decreasing ionic radius ofR 3+. Powder diffraction patterns for these compounds have been submitted to the Powder Diffraction File (PDF).
