Journal of Alloys and Compounds Impact Factor & Information

Publisher: Elsevier

Journal description

The aim of the Journal of Alloys and Compounds is identical to the journal's aim under its previous title: Journal of the Less-Common Metals. The journal was originally intended to serve as an international medium for the publication of work on the physical sciences of usually called less-common-metals, their compounds and their alloys. Its great strength lies in the diversity of discipline which it encompasses, drawing together results from materials science, solid-state chemistry and physics. The interdisciplinary nature of the journal is evident in many subject areas. Experimental and theoretical approaches to materials problems require an active interplay between a variety of traditional and novel scientific disciplines. In much of the work published in the journal, synthetic and structural studies are combined with investigations of chemical and physical properties of alloys and compounds, contributing to the development of areas of current scientific interest. The Journal of Alloys and Compounds provides a unique international forum where materials scientists, chemists and physicists can present their results both to workers in their own fields and to others active in related areas.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract This work reports the structural, morphological and optical properties of zinc sulphide (ZnS) thin films obtained by chemical spray pyrolysis (CSP) technique using zinc chloride as cationic and thiourea as anionic source with ethylene-diamine tetra acetate (EDTA) complex. The ZnS thin films were deposited on glass substrate at 300 °C, 400 °C and 450 °C. The influence of the substrate temperatures on the structural, morphological and optical properties was studied. The XRD spectra show that the film is nanocrystalline with peak intensity increasing with temperature. The morphology of the films was seen by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The films dislocation density and micro strain increased with temperature. Optical properties show a high transmittance which increased with temperature.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract The structural, elastic, lattice dynamic, and electronic properties of intermetallic FeV with B2 ordering under hydrostatic pressure are extensively investigated by using the first-principles calculations within density functional theory. The calculated lattice constant, bulk modulus, magnetic moment, and number of electronic states at the Fermi level at P = 0 GPa are in a good agreement with the previous calculated and experimental results. The elastic moduli show linearly increasing trends with pressure, except shear modulus which shows a linear softening trend. The transverse acoustic (TA) phonon mode propagating along the [110] direction polarized along the [11-0] direction decreases to be imaginary crossing the critical pressure ∼9.4 GPa, resulting in the structural instability of B2-FeV intermetallic. Comparing the phonon softening with the shear modulus softening, it is suggested that the soft phonon mode dominates the pressure-induced structural instability of B2-FeV. The electronic density of state (DOS) shows that a considerable increase in the number of electronic states at the Fermi level with increasing pressure, and this behavior is consistent with the phonon softening.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, copper-bismuth oxide (CuBi2O4) nanoparticles were supported on nanoporous stainless steel by a simple electrochemical deposition method and then was employed as a binder-free electrode for supercapacitor application. The structure and surface morphologies of the nanoparticles-supported on nanoporous stainless steel were investigated using X-ray diffraction spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The electrochemical properties of the proposed electrode were examined using cyclic voltammetry and galvanostatic charge–discharge techniques in different electrolytes. The results showed that the proposed electrode exhibited a maximum specific capacitance of 144 mA h g−1 or 647 F g−1 at a current density of 1.0 A g−1 in 6.0 mol L−1 KOH with excellent long-term cycling stability (80% capacitance remained after 500 charge–discharge cycles). The proposed nanostructure is a suitable candidate for electrode material in energy storage devices.

    ABSTRACT: The local electronic and magnetic structure, hyperfine interactions, and phase composition of polycrystalline Ni-deficient Ni3-xFexAl (x = 0.18 and 0.36) were investigated by means of 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction and magnetization measurements. The ab initio calculations performed with the projector augmented wave method and the calculations of the energies of iron point defects were done to elucidate the electronic structure and site preference of Fe doped Ni3Al. The value of calculated electric field gradient tensor Vzz = 1.6 1021 Vm-2 matches well with the results of Mössbauer spectroscopy and indicates that the Fe atoms occupy Ni sites.
