    ABSTRACT: Single crystals of the potassium salt (K5, H3O)[SiV3W9O40H]·xH2O of the vanadium tri-substituted α-Keggin dodecatungstosilicate were prepared and analyzed by vibrational, EPR and 51V NMR spectroscopy. Varying the synthesis conditions allows crystallization of partially reduced anions. The crystal structure was determined for both oxidized (V5+) and partially reduced (V4+/5+) potassium salts. Single crystal X-ray diffraction data and solid state 51V-NMR spectra confirm the occurrence of a single vanadium site in a cubic structure due to rotational disorder of the Keggin ion. Partially reduced compounds crystallize within the same structure as fully oxidized ones. EPR experiments confirm strong interaction of V4+ with two V5+ ions, in accordance with insertion of a V3 subunit into the lacunary Keggin ion as designed in the synthesis method. The 3D-edifice is composed of K+/H2O counter-sublattice with evidence of tunable water occupancy.

    ABSTRACT: The changes caused by heat treatment of gibbsite powder at 300 to 1473 K were studied using the X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoemission (XPS) spectra and 27Al magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (27Al MAS NMR). XRD analysis indicates that the transformation sequence involves the formation of κ–Al2O3 as an intermediate phase between χ– and α–Al2O3. The crystallite size of χ–Al2O3 is as small as 10 nm. XPS analysis indicates that the ratio of aluminium atoms to oxygen atoms in χ–Al2O3 and κ–Al2O3 increases, whereas the expected ratio is observed in α–Al2O3. The percentage of AlO4 units in the transition aluminas follows the same behaviour as the ratio of Al/O.

    ABSTRACT: We report the synthesis and structural characterization of the new Ir holladite, Rb0.17IrO2. Rb0.17IrO2 crystallizes in the tetragonal hollandite structure. In contrast to the previously reported monoclinic Ir hollandite K0.25IrO2, we do not observe a difference in Ir–O bond lengths in Rb0.17IrO2 and thus find Ir in an average oxidation state of + 3.83. We also report and compare the electronic and magnetic properties of Rb0.17IrO2 and K0.25IrO2, finding that they are both metallic and Pauli paramagnets further supporting that the electrons are delocalized in the Ir 5d states.

    ABSTRACT: The effects of Mn-doping on the crystal structure, magnetic and electrical/thermal transport properties of GaNCr3−xMnx (0≤x≤1.5) have been investigated systematically. As a result, the lattice constant and the residual resistivity increase, while the residual resistivity ratio, electron thermal conductivity, and room-temperature carrier concentration decrease with increasing Mn-doping level. The ground state of parent compound GaNCr3 is nonmagnetic, interestingly, the ferrimagnetism and antiferromagnetism are observed in Mn-doped samples GaNCr3−xMnx. Correspondingly, around the antiferromagnetic transition of GaNCr3−xMnx the correlation effect is studied. Furthermore, the analysis of thermal conductivity data suggests that the electron thermal conductivity plays a major role in total thermal conductivity of GaNCr3 at low temperatures, while the phonon thermal conductivity is dominant for Mn-doped GaNCr3 in the whole temperature of 5–330 K. The positive values of Seebeck coefficient and Hall coefficient indicate that the nature of charge carrier is hole-type in GaNCr3−xMnx.

    ABSTRACT: The phase composition and morphology of zirconium and hafnium germanates synthesized by ceramic and co-precipitation routes were studied. The products were characterized using high-temperature X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and thermal (TG/DTA) analysis. To investigate the phase composition and stoichiometry of compounds the unit cell parameters were refined by full-profile Rietveld XRD analysis. The morphology of products and its evolution during high-temperature treatment was examined by SEM analysis.It was stated that there is the strong dependence of the phase composition and morphology of products on the preparation route. The ceramic route requires a multi-stage high-temperature treatment to obtain zirconium and hafnium germanates of 95% purity or more. Also, there are strong diffusion limitations to obtain hafnium germanate Hf3GeO8 by ceramic route. On the contrary, the co-precipitation route leads to the formation of nanocrystalline single phase germanates of stoichiometric composition at a relatively low temperatures (less than 1000 °C). The results of quantitative XRD analysis showed the hafnium germanates are stoichiometric compounds in contrast to zirconium germanates that form a set of solid solutions. This distinction may be related to the difference in the ion radii of Zr and Hf.

    ABSTRACT: The FexPt100−x nanoparticles (NPs) with different nominal atomic rations (30≤x≤80) were synthesized at 700 °C by the sol–gel method. The structure, morphology and magnetic properties of the samples were investigated. When the Fe content in the Fe–Pt alloy NPs was 30 at%, FePt3 NPs were successfully synthesized. With the increase in Fe content up to 50 at%, it was found that the superlattice reflections (0 0 1) and (1 1 0) appeared, which indicated the formation of the L10-FePt phase. Meanwhile, the FePt3 fraction was reduced. When the Fe content increased to 60 at%, single-phase L10-FePt NPs were synthesized. The coercivity (Hc), saturation magnetization (Ms) and chemical order parameter S for Fe60Pt40 NPs were as high as 10,200 Oe, 17.567 emu/g and 0.928, respectively. With the further increase of the Fe content to 80 at%, only Fe3Pt phase existed and the Hc of the Fe3Pt NPs decreased drastically to 360 Oe.

    ABSTRACT: Adsorption kinetics of molsidomine on mesoporous silica material (UMS), the phenyl- (PhMS) and mercaptopropyl-functionalized (MMS) derivatives from solution with different pH and 298 K was studied. The adsorption kinetics was found to follow the pseudo-second-order kinetic model for all studied silica materials and pH. Effects of surface functional groups and pH on adsorption efficiency and kinetic adsorption parameters were investigated. At all studied pH, the highest molsidomine amount is adsorbed on PhMS due to π–π interactions and hydrogen bonding between surface groups of PhMS and molsidomine molecules. An increase of pH results in a decrease of the amounts of adsorbed molsidomine onto the silica materials. Furthermore, the highest adsorption rate kinetically evaluated using a pseudo-second-order model, is observed onto UMS and it strongly depends on pH. The mechanism of the adsorption process was determined from the intraparticle diffusion and Boyd kinetic film–diffusion models. The results showed that the molsidomine adsorption on the silica materials is controlled by film diffusion. Effect of pH on the diffusion parameters is discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Five new inorganic–organic hybrids based on 4,4′-bipyridine and Keggin-type polyoxometalate [SiMo12O40]4−, (SiMo12O40)(H2bipy)2·2H2O (1), [Cu(Hbipy)4(HSiMo12O40)(SiMo12O40)](H2bipy)0.5·7H2O (2), [Cu2(Hbipy)6(bipy)(SiMo12O40)3](Hbipy)2·6H2O (3), [Cu(bipy)2(SiMo12O40)](H2bipy)·2H2O (4) and [Cu2(bipy)4(H2O)4](SiMo12O40)·13H2O (5) (bipy=4,4′-bipyridine), have been hydrothermally synthesized. 1 consists of H2bipy2+ and [SiMo12O40]4− units. In 2, two [SiMo12O40]4− are bridged by [Cu(Hbipy)4]6+ to form a [Cu(Hbipy)4(SiMo12O40)2]2− dimmer. In 3, [SiMo12O40]4− polyanions acting as bidentated bridging ligands and monodentated auxiliary ligands connect [Cu2(Hbipy)6(bipy)]8+ units into a 1D zigzag chain. In 4, [SiMo12O40]4− polyanions bridge neighboring 1D [Cu(bipy)2]2+ double chains into a 2D extended layer. In 5, [SiMo12O40]4− polyanions acting as templates site alternately upon the grids from both sides of the square grid [Cu2(bipy)4(H2O)4]4+ layer. In addition, the electrochemical behaviors of 1, 3 and 4 and the photocatalysis property of 1 have been investigated.

    ABSTRACT: Under the application of magnetic field, magnetic fluids exhibits magnetoviscous effect. We have observed large magneto viscous effects by dispersing magnetic and non-magnetic anisotropic micron size magnetic particles in a ferrofluid , the mixture is known as ferrodispersion. For both the samples density and volume concentrations of large particles are kept identical i.e. 25, 50 and 75 vol %. It is observed that for 25% and 50% vol. concentration the magnetoviscous effect for both the samples is comparable, however for 75% concentration the field dependent viscosity of non-magnetic bentonite anisotropic particles are much larger than its counterpart. This shows even non magnetic particle can also enhance the magneto viscous effect. Results can be useful to develop a novel kind of bidispersed magnetorheological fluids to increase its commercial applicability.
