Title: Flux crystal growth of uranium( v ) containing oxyfluoride perovskites

Abstract

Crystals of three new uranium( v ) containing oxyfluorides were grown out of an alkali fluoride flux and adopt a perovskite-type structure and are examined by SXRD, PXRD, XANES, XPS, EDS, magnetic susceptibility measurements, DFT calculations, and UV-vis spectroscopy.
