Title: Quaternary M{sub 0.25}Cu{sub 0.25}Mg{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} (M = Ni, Zn, Co, Mn) ferrite oxides: Synthesis, characterization and magnetic properties

Abstract

Highlights: • Superparamagnetic quaternary nanoferrite (M{sub 0.25}Cu{sub 0.25}Mg{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4,} where M = Mn, Zn, Co, Ni) were obtained. • C, O, H and metals were observed by XPS analysis. • Phases purity were confirmed by XRD diffraction and crystallite size (3–10 nm) were determind. - Abstract: We report the synthesis of M{sub 0.25}Cu{sub 0.25}Mg{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} (where M = Mn, Zn, Co, Ni) nanoparticles using the coprecipitation method in the presence of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) as the in-situ surfactant. The crystalline structure and surface morphology were examined by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and it was established that the average diameter of the magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) is in the range of 3–10 nm. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) show that the MNPs are activated by the hydrophilic groups of the surfactant, which coat them and enhance their stability. The vibrating sample magnetometry measurements show the superparamagnetic behavior of the nanoparticles. Due to their small crystallite size, which implies large surface area, and their functionalization with organic groups, the obtained nanoparticles could have medical and catalytic applications.

  • Two new quaternary yttrium molybdenum selenium/tellurium oxides, Y{sub 2}MoSe{sub 3}O{sub 12} and Y{sub 2}MoTe{sub 3}O{sub 12} have been prepared by standard solid-state reactions using Y{sub 2}O{sub 3}, MoO{sub 3}, and SeO{sub 2} (or TeO{sub 2}) as reagents. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction was used to determine the crystal structures of the reported materials. Although both of the materials contain second-order Jahn–Teller (SOJT) distortive cations and are stoichiometrically similar, they reveal different structural features: while Y{sub 2}MoSe{sub 3}O{sub 12} shows a three-dimensional framework consisting of YO{sub 8}, MoO{sub 6}, and SeO{sub 3} groups, Y{sub 2}MoTe{sub 3}O{sub 12} exhibits a layered structure composed ofmore » YO{sub 8}, MoO{sub 4}, TeO{sub 3}, and TeO{sub 4} polyhedra. With the Mo{sup 6+} cations in Y{sub 2}MoSe{sub 3}O{sub 12}, a C{sub 3}-type intraoctahedral distortion toward a face is observed, in which the direction of the out-of-center distortion for Mo{sup 6+} is away from the oxide ligand linked to a Se{sup 4+} cation. The Se{sup 4+} and Te{sup 4+} cations in both materials are in asymmetric coordination environment attributed to the lone pairs. Elemental analyses, infrared spectroscopy, thermal analyses, intraoctahedral distortions, and dipole moment calculations for the compounds are also presented. - Graphical abstract: Y{sub 2}MoSe{sub 3}O{sub 12} reveals a three-dimensional framework consisting of YO{sub 8}, MoO{sub 6}, and SeO{sub 3} polyhedra, whereas Y{sub 2}MoTe{sub 3}O{sub 12} exhibits a layered structure composed of YO{sub 8}, MoO{sub 4}, TeO{sub 3}, and TeO{sub 4} groups. - Highlights: • Two new selenite and tellurite (Y{sub 2}MoQ{sub 3}O{sub 12}; Q=Se and Te) are synthesized. • Y{sub 2}MoQ{sub 3}O{sub 12} contain second-order Jahn–Teller distortive cations in asymmetric environments. • The intra-octahedral distortion of the Mo{sup 6+} is influenced by the Se{sup 4+}.« less
  • The structural characterization and electronic properties for the LaNi{sub 1-x}W{sub x}O{sub 3} perovskite-like system are reported. Neutron and X-ray powder diffraction data suggest that for the x > 0 phases, an orthorhombic symmetry (space group Pbnm) is adopted showing that Ni and W atoms are placed at random. The evolution of the cell-parameters is in agreement with the different size of the concerned cations in each case. The electronic measurements between 5 and 950 K show a temperature dependence of conductivity very sensitive to the composition. For the 0 {le} {times} {le} 0.20 compounds, a conductivity variation very close tomore » metallic behavior is observed whereas the mixed oxide with x = 0.25 behaves as a semiconductor. Both conductivity data and Seebeck coefficient measurements are interpreted on the basis of a correlated system in which a metal to insulator transition takes place as a function of temperature and composition. An schematic band model consistent with both the electronic properties and structural features is proposed.« less
  • The crystal structure of the Zr{sub 1-x}Y{sub x}NiSn half-Heusler solid solutions is synthesized and their crystal structure is determined. Electrical resistivity and thermoelectric Seebeck coefficient are measured in the 80-380 K temperature range, whereas magnetic susceptibility is measured at 290 K. It is established that substitution of Zr host atoms by Y in the ZrNiSn intermetallic semiconductor is equivalent to doping by acceptor impurities. Self-consistent ab initio calculations, based on the full potential local orbital (FPLO) minimum basis method, are performed to investigate the electronic and thermoelectric properties of these alloys. Spin polarized within the framework of the coherent potentialmore » approximation (CPA) are included. - Graphical abstract: Both approaches experimental and calculations point to the same conclusions. Resistivity and thermopower measurements assert that doping of ZrNiSn based compound by the Y as acceptor impurity induces the insulator-metal transition and leads the S value sign reverse.« less
