Phase Diagram and Spin Hamiltonian of Weaklycoupled Anisotropic S=1/2 Chains in CuCl _{2} ^{.}2((CD _{3}) _{2}SO)
Abstract
Fielddependent specific heat and neutron scattering measurements were used to explore the antiferromagnetic S=(1/2) chain compound CuCl{sub 2}{center_dot}2((CD{sub 3}){sub 2}SO). At zero field the system acquires magnetic longrange order below T{sub N}=0.93 K with an ordered moment of 0.44{micro}{sub B}. An external field along the b axis strengthens the zerofield magnetic order, while fields along the a and c axes lead to a collapse of the exchange stabilized order at {micro}{sub 0}H{sub c}=6 T and {micro}{sub 0}H{sub c}=4 T (extrapolated to zero temperature) and the formation of an energy gap in the excitation spectrum. We relate the fieldinduced gap to the presence of a staggered gtensor and DzyaloshinskiiMoriya interactions, which lead to effective staggered fields for magnetic fields applied along the a and c axes. Competition between anisotropy, interchain interactions, and staggered fields leads to a succession of three phases as a function of field applied along the c axis. For fields greater than {micro}{sub 0}H{sub c}, we find a magnetic structure that reflects the symmetry of the staggered fields. The critical exponent, beta, of the temperature driven phase transitions are indistinguishable from those of the threedimensional Heisenberg magnet, while measurements for transitions driven by quantum fluctuations produce larger valuesmore »

Sulfur dioxide reacts with [PPN]{sub 2}[MFe{sub 3}(CO){sub 14}] (M = Cr, Mo, W) (PPN = bistriphenylphosphonium iminium) to produce [PPN]{sub 2}[Fe{sub 3}(CO){sub 9}({mu}{sub 3},{eta}{sup 2}SO{sub 2})] (1) and [PPN]{sub 2}[Fe{sub 3}(CO){sub 8}({mu}SO{sub 2}){mu}{sub 3}S] (2), which were characterized by infrared spectroscopy, {sup 13}C NMR, and Xray crystallography. Further reaction of 1 with sulfur dioxide results in the formation of 2 in 48% yield. Reaction of SO{sub 2} with [PPN]{sub 2}[Fe{sub 4}(CO){sub 13}] yields [PPN]{sub 2}[Fe{sub 2}(CO){sub 6}({mu}SO{sub 2}){sub 2}] (3) which was characterized by infrared spectroscopy, {sup 13}C NMR, mass spectrometry, and Xray crystallography.

EPR study of Gd{sup 3+}doped RbR(SO{sub 4}){sub 2}{center_dot}4H{sub 2}O (R=Pr,Nd,Sm,Eu) single crystals: Phase transitions and spinHamiltonian parameters
Extensive EPR measurements were carried out in the temperature range 100{endash}300 K. The roomtemperature data indicate that Gd{sup 3+} ions substitute equally for R{sup 3+} ions at the two magnetically inequivalent sites in the unit cell, and that the site symmetry of the Gd{sup 3+} ion is monoclinic. The Gd{sup 3+} roomtemperature spinHamiltonian parameters and linewidths were estimated. The phase transition temperatures (T{sub c}) were determined to be 175{plus_minus}1K (first order) in RbPr(SO{sub 4}){sub 2}{center_dot}4H{sub 2}O, 178.5{plus_minus}1K (first order) in RbNd(SO{sub 4}){sub 2}{center_dot}4H{sub 2}O, 232{plus_minus}0.5K (second order) in RbSm(SO{sub 4}){sub 2}{center_dot}4H{sub 2}O, and 230.5{plus_minus}0.5K (second order) in RbEu(SO{sub 4}){sub 2}{center_dot}4H{submore » 
Lowtemperature thermal conductivity of antiferromagnetic S = 1/2 chain material CuCl{sub 2}·2((CH{sub 3}){sub 2}SO)
We study the heat transport of S = 1/2 chain compound CuCl{sub 2}·2((CH{sub 3}){sub 2}SO) along the b axis (vertical to the chain direction) at very low temperatures. The zerofield thermal conductivity (κ) shows a distinct kink at about 0.9 K, which is related to the longrange antiferromagnetic (AF) transition. With applying magnetic field along the c axis, κ(H) curves also show distinct changes at the phase boundaries between the AF and the highfield disordered states. These results indicate a strong spinphonon interaction and the magnetic excitations play a role in the baxis heat transport as phonon scatterers.

New complexes, mer,trans,M(CO)/sub 3/(PR/sub 3/)/sub 2/(SO/sub 2/) (M = Mo,W; R = Ph,Cy,iPr) (I), cis,transMo(CO)/sub 2/(PPh/sub 3/)/sub 2/(SO/sub 2/)(L) (L = NCMe,py,CNCy,CNtBu and CN(ptolyl))(II), and (Mo(CO)/sub 2/(py)(PPh/sub 3/)(..mu..SO/sub 2/))/sub 2/, have been prepared and characterized by infrared spectroscopy, /sup 17/O and /sup 31/P NMR spectroscopy, and Xray crystallography. Syntheses for facMo(CO)/sub 3/(n/sup 2/SO/sub 2/)(LL) (LL = dppe,bpy,phen,2 py) have also been developed. Depending upon L, II has been found to coordinate SO/sub 2/ either in the Sbonded (n/sup 1/ planar) or O,Sbonded (n/sup 2/) geometries. Remarkably, for L = CNCy or CNtBu, II has been found to contain, in themore »
