Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Magnetic structure compounds with a strong coupling of chemical composition, crystal/magnetic structure, and magnetic properties are very important today. A significant interest is due to deep fundamental and practical aspects. Chemical composition critically influences structural parameters and functional properties in magnetic structure compounds. New theoretical and experimental data lead to the emergence of new technologies that will make our world a better place. I kindly invite you to make a contribution to this Special Issue of Crystals titled as “Magnetic Structure Compounds”.

The effects of a weak magnetic field on chemical reactions are still not well understood. In our research, we used a sparking discharge process to ionize and atomize different metal wires in ambient air under usual atmospheric conditions, with and without the presence of a magnetic field. Products were collected on a glass substrate and additionally characterized for the presence of nitrogen or nitride bonding with XPS. All samples sparked with no magnetic field provided an evidence of nitride formation. Additional characterization and comparison of samples prepared inside and outside a magnetic field was performed using FTIR and collected in deionized (DI) water to investigate the influence on conductivity and pH. When the magnetic field was present during sparking discharge, a higher concentration of nanoparticles was produced. Full article

Magnetic properties of the high-pressure stabilized perovskite BiFe1-yScyO3 phases (0.1 ≤ y ≤ 0.9) have been studied by means of magnetization measurements and neutron diffraction. The metastable perovskites of this series undergo irreversible polymorphic transformations upon annealing, the phenomenon referred to as conversion polymorphism. It has been found that the solid solutions with y ≥ 0.70 exhibit no long-range magnetic ordering regardless of their polymorph modification, while those with y ≤ 0.60 are all antiferromagnets. Depending on the scandium content, temperature and structural distortions, three types of the antiferromagnetic orderings, involving collinear, canted and cycloidal spin arrangements, have been revealed in the phases obtained via conversion polymorphism and the corresponding magnetic phase diagram has been suggested.

We reported the growth of Fe2As single crystals and the study of its physical properties via comprehensive measurements, such as transport properties under pressure and high-pressure synchrotron radiation X-ray diffraction. Fe2As is an antiferromagnetic metal with TN ~ 355 K. Within the pressure range of 100 GPa, no superconductivity was observed above 2 K. The abrupt drop in resistance from 21 to 31.7 GPa suggests a high-pressure phase transition happens. The high-pressure X-ray experiments indicate a new high-pressure phase appears, starting from 27.13 GPa. After the refinement of the high-pressure X-ray data, the pressure dependence of lattice constants of Fe2As (P4/nmm phase) was plotted and the bulk modulus B0 was obtained to be 168.6 GPa.

Titanium substituted barium hexaferrite BaFe12−xTixO19 single crystal was grown by the top seeded solution growth method from flux on the seed with controlled cooling below 1175 °C. Titanium substitution level gradient in the single crystal in the vertical and horizontal directions was studied. Two planes were cut and polished. A justification for the linear gradient of Ti substitution in a BaFe12−xTixO19 single crystal is proposed; substitution levels in the center and periphery were determined. It was shown that upon growth by the top seeded solution growth method, crystals with a linear Ti substitution level gradient from x = 0.73 to x = 0.77 for a distance of 11 mm along pulling direction were obtained. The study led to the conclusion about the relationship of the gradient and changes in the composition of the nutrient solution. Full article
