    ABSTRACT: Isomerically pure endohedral fullerene with a gadolinium carbide cluster Gd2C2@C82(C s ) has been synthesized by the electric-arc method, extracted from soot by o-dichlorobenzene, separated chromatographically, and characterized by mass spectroscopic and spectrophotometric methods. The energy and optical absorption spectra of the synthesized compound have been calculated for the first time within the Hubbard model. Good agreement of the experimental and calculated optical absorption curves has been observed

    ABSTRACT: Structural changes in polymer crystals (polyethylene, polyimide, and others) have been studied using the X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy methods under different influences: tensile loading along the chain molecule axis and heating from 90 to 350 K. An increase in the molecule axial length under loading and a decrease in the molecule axial length upon heating have been identified and measured using X-ray diffraction. A decrease in the skeletal vibration frequency during loading and heating has been identified and measured using Raman spectroscopy, which indicates an increase in the molecule contour length in both cases. A technique for determining the change in the polyethylene molecule contour length in the crystal from the measured change in the skeletal vibration frequency has been justified. The contributions of two components, namely, skeletal (carbon–carbon) bond stretching and the change (an increase during stretching and a decrease during heating) in the angle between skeletal bonds, to the longitudinal deformation of polyethylene crystals, have been quantitatively estimated. It has been shown that the negative thermal expansion (contraction) of the polymer crystal is caused by the dominant contribution of the decrease in the bond angle.

    ABSTRACT: It has been shown that, at temperatures of 140–300 K in the frequency range from 0.065 to 6 Hz, the permittivities ε′ and ε″ of CoCr2S3.5Se0.5 increase with an increase in the temperature according to the law εi = ai1 + aj2 exp(–Δxi/kT). As the frequency increases, the permittivity decreases. An analysis has demonstrated that the main polarization mechanism is the orientation polarization.

    ABSTRACT: The differences in the hysteresis loops of the (DyPr)CoFeB ferrimagnetic alloy powders dispersed in a polymer and eicosane, in a free form, and in sintered samples, have been analyzed. It has been shown that the differences are determined by changes in the dipole–dipole interaction between microparticles upon their dissolution, as well as are determined by the mechanical rotation of the particles and the degree of pinning of their easy axes.

    ABSTRACT: The breaking strain of a model fragment of a middle radical in a rigid polymer matrix has been calculated. The force and energy characteristics of the destruction of the radical and the formation of double bonds have been estimated. The dissociation energy and the strength of Cβ–Cγ bonds for trans- and gaucheconformers of radicals have been determined. It has been established that the probability of breaking of the β bonds essentially depends of the conformation structure of the macroradicals.

    ABSTRACT: A simple model of a molecular chain on the plane, which allows the description of folded and scrolled packings of graphene nanoribbons, has been proposed. Using this model, possible steady states of single-walled graphene nanoribbons have been obtained, their stability has been shown, and their energy has been calculated as a function of the nanoribbon length L. The results obtained have been easily interpreted taking into account that the formation of van der Waals bonds results in an energy gain, while the bending of the nanoribbon leads to an energy loss. It has been shown that, at L > 13.39 nm, the minimum energy among the studied conformations is inherent in the scrolled packing, which is possible for nanoribbons with length L ⩾ 5.77 nm. For shorter nanoribbons, only the plane form exists. The simplicity of the proposed model allows the consideration of the dynamics of longer graphene nanoribbon rolls at rather long time intervals.

    ABSTRACT: The dynamic magnetic susceptibility of lead hexaferrite has been experimentally studied in the temperature range of the transition from the magnetically ordered to paramagnetic state. As the vector of the ac magnetic field is oriented in the easy-magnetization direction along hexagonal axis c, anomalous peakshaped decrease in the real part of the magnetic susceptibility has been observed near the Curie temperature. The observed effect depends on the ac magnetic field frequency and disappears at a frequency near 12 MHz. The observed features have been interpreted as the effects caused by the relaxation resonance.

    ABSTRACT: The influence of the composition and different modes of applying a direct-current (dc) electric field (0 < E < 4 kV/cm) on the behavior of the temperature dependences of the dielectric permittivity, optical transmission, as well as the velocity and attenuation of sound, has been investigated in the [001]-oriented PbIn1/2Nb1/2O3–PbMg1/3Nb2/3O3–PbTiO3 single crystals located both far from the morphotropic phase boundary and in its vicinity. It has been found that, in the phase transition region in a narrow field range for any mode of applying an electric field, all the crystals under investigation are characterized by abrupt changes in their physical properties. It has been shown that the phase transition rate and the attenuation of sound are different in the crystals located at different distances from the morphotropic phase boundary. The E–T phase diagrams have been constructed for different modes of applying an electric field. It has been demonstrated that the phase diagrams constructed for the same crystal but different modes of applying an electric field differ from each other. Possible reasons for the observed phenomena have been discussed.

    ABSTRACT: The mechanism of magnetization reversal of a nanowire through the displacement of domain walls and the mechanism of magnetization reversal through the growth of nuclei of the reverse phase have been investigated. It has been found that the displacement of domain walls pinned by magnetic inhomogeneities is similar to the displacement of domain walls in the bulk material, whereas the magnetization reversal by means of the nucleation is fundamentally different. The threshold of the catastrophic growth of a nucleus has been revealed and analyzed. The walls bounding the nucleus have an anomalously low mobility. An explanation of the low mobility of the nucleus boundaries has been proposed.
