Title: Study of the structure of PyHReO{sub 4} under high pressure

Abstract

The structure of deuterated pyridinium perrhenate (d{sub 5}PyH)ReO{sub 4} (C{sub 5}D{sub 5}NHReO{sub 4}) is studied by X-ray diffraction at room temperature and pressures up to 3.5 GPa and by neutron diffraction in the temperature range 10-293 K and at pressures up to 2.0 GPa. Under normal conditions, this compound belongs to the orthorhombic space group Cmc2{sub 1} (ferroelectric phase II). At room temperature and pressures above P > 0.7 GPa, a transition to an orthorhombic phase (paraelectric phase II) is observed. This paraelectric phase is described by the space group Cmcm. At a pressure as high as P = 2.0 GPa, phase I remains stable at temperatures down to 10 K. This fact indicates that the high pressure suppresses the ferroelectric state in deuterated pyridinium perrhenate (d{sub 5}PyH)ReO{sub 4}.

  • We report on the reproducible growth of (Cu{sub 1-x}V{sub x})V{sub 2}S{sub 4} single crystals of sizable dimensions ({approx}0.3 mm) and homogeneous composition (x{approx}0.3) by means of high-pressure synthesis. The refinement of single crystal X-ray diffraction data indicates that the crystal structure is of the monoclinic defect NiAs-type, which consists of a stacking of VS{sub 2} layers with CdI{sub 2}-type structure and chains of edge-sharing (Cu{sub 1-x}V{sub x})S{sub 6} octahedra. Layers and chains form a network of face-sharing octahedra with no Cu-V intra-chain ordering. A combined X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and bond valence sum analysis indicates that the valence of the Vmore » and Cu ions are 3+ and 1+, respectively. Magnetic susceptibility measurements unveil the coexistence of a large Pauli-like and of a small Curie-like paramagnetic contributions, with no evidence of any long range order down to 2 K. This result suggests a picture of predominantly itinerant 3d V electrons with significant electron-electron correlations. - Graphical Abstract: Crystallographic structure of (Cu{sub 0.69}V{sub 0.31})V{sub 2}S{sub 4}. For clarity, the octahedral environment of (Cu{sub 0.69}V{sub 0.31}) site is not shown. Highlights: > Synthesis of new single-crystals in the Cu-V-S system using high pressure and high temperature. > Structural analysis revealed the single-crystals to be of the defect NiAs-type structure. > Bond valence sum analysis combined to X-ray photoemission spectroscopy revealed Cu{sup 1+} and a majority of V{sup 3+}. > Magnetic susceptibility has been measured. > Charge carriers are of two types, localized and itinerant.« less
  • The first lanthanum fluoride borate La{sub 4}B{sub 4}O{sub 11}F{sub 2} was obtained in a Walker-type multianvil apparatus at 6 GPa and 1300 {sup o}C. La{sub 4}B{sub 4}O{sub 11}F{sub 2} crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2{sub 1}/c with the lattice parameters a=778.1(2) pm, b=3573.3(7) pm, c=765.7(2) pm, {beta}=113.92(3){sup o} (Z=8), and represents a new structure type in the class of compounds with the composition RE{sub 4}B{sub 4}O{sub 11}F{sub 2}. The crystal structure contains BO{sub 4}-tetrahedra interconnected with two BO{sub 3}-groups via common vertices, B{sub 2}O{sub 5}-pyroborate units, and isolated BO{sub 3}-groups. The structure shows a wave-like modulation along the b-axis.more » The crystal structure and properties of La{sub 4}B{sub 4}O{sub 11}F{sub 2} are discussed and compared to Gd{sub 4}B{sub 4}O{sub 11}F{sub 2}. - Graphical abstract: A new structure type of RE{sub 4}B{sub 4}O{sub 11}F{sub 2}: high-pressure synthesis and crystal structure of La{sub 4}B{sub 4}O{sub 11}F{sub 2}.« less
  • High oxygen pressures have been achieved in a piston-cylinder apparatus using a double capsule assembly consisting of a sealed outer Au capsule, containing an oxygen source (KMnO[sub 4]), and an inner, open Pt capsule containing the sample. Using this technique, La[sub 2]CuO[sub 4] was annealed at 800 [degree]C, 5--25 kbar for 2--4 h. Transposed temperature drop calorimetry at 704 [degree]C was used to determine the enthalpy of oxidation, and weight loss measurements characterized the oxygen nonstoichiometry, [delta], in La[sub 2]CuO[sub 4+[delta]], in the high-pressure, oxygen annealed samples. For samples analyzed at room temperature, x-ray diffraction measurements show that beyond [delta][approx]0.10--0.13,more » additional oxygen is accommodated in a perovskite-like LaCuO[sub 3[minus][alpha]] phase. An analysis of the thermochemical measurements indicates that the nature of holes in La[sub 2]CuO[sub 4+[delta]] could change in the range of [delta][approx]0.03--0.06.[sup 16,17] It is further suggested that the observed change in the thermochemical behavior in the range of [delta][approx]0.01--0.06 could be the driving influence behind the spinodal decomposition of La[sub 2]CuO[sub 4+[delta]] at low temperatures (Dabrowski [ital et] [ital al].[sup 10]).« less
  • The elastic properties, elastic anisotropy, and thermodynamic properties of the lately synthesized orthorhombic FeB{sub 4} at high pressures are investigated using first-principles density functional calculations. The calculated equilibrium parameters are in good agreement with the available experimental and theoretical data. The obtained normalized volume dependence of high pressure is consistent with the previous experimental data investigated using high-pressure synchrotron x-ray diffraction. The complete elastic tensors and crystal anisotropies of the FeB{sub 4} are also determined in the pressure range of 0–100 GPa. By the elastic stability criteria and vibrational frequencies, it is predicted that the orthorhombic FeB{sub 4} is stable upmore » to 100 GPa. In addition, the calculated B/G ratio reveals that FeB{sub 4} possesses brittle nature in the range of pressure from 0 to 100 GPa. The calculated elastic anisotropic factors suggest that FeB{sub 4} is elastically anisotropic. By using quasi-harmonic Debye model, the compressibility, bulk modulus, the coefficient of thermal expansion, the heat capacity, and the Grüneisen parameter of FeB{sub 4} are successfully obtained in the present work.« less
  • Magnetization of {ital R}{sub 2}CuO{sub 4} ({ital R}=Y, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm) crystallizing in the Nd{sub 2}CuO{sub 4}-type ({ital T}{prime}) structure has been measured between 4 and 300 K. In Y{sub 2}CuO{sub 4} antiferromagnetic ordering of Cu{sup 2+} spins at 260 K has been detected clearly, without being interfered with by the paramagnetic contribution of rare-earth elements as in the other compositions. Weak ferromagnetic behavior with a moment of 9{times}10{sup {minus}4} {mu}{sub {ital B}}/Cu accompanies the antiferromagnetic transition. Dy{sup 3+}, Ho{sup 3+}, Er{sup 3+}, and Tm{sup 3+} ions obey the Curie-Weiss law at relatively high temperatures, and the effective momentsmore » are in good agreement with the values anticipated from their lowest multiplet levels. Various types of deviations from the law occur at low temperatures. Specifically, a sharp kink possibly suggesting antiferromagnetic ordering of the Dy{sup 3+} moments has been found at 7 K. Anomalies around 200 K for Ho{sub 2}CuO{sub 4} and Er{sub 2}CuO{sub 4} reflect the weak ferromagnetic contribution of the CuO{sub 2} lattice.« less
