Franco, D. G., R. E. Carbonio, and G. Nieva. "Synthesis and structural and magnetic characterization of the frustrated magnetic system La2Ni4/3âˆ’xCoxSb2/3O6." Journal of Solid State Chemistry 207 (2013): 69–79.
Abstract: We report the synthesis of double perovskites La2Ni4/3âˆ’xCoxSb2/3O6 with x=0, 1/3, 2/3 and 1 by a solid state method. Rietveld refinements of X-ray and neutron powder diffraction data show that all samples crystallize in space group P21/n, with almost perfect occupation of the 2d octahedral site with the transition metals, while all Sb5+ are randomly distributed in a 2c octahedral site. The saturation magnetization in hysteresis loops indicates that the samples are ferrimagnetic throughout all the series. Virgin magnetization curves lie outside hysteresis loops at low temperatures and thermal evolution of Hm â€“ defined as the inflection point of these curves â€“ follows the de Almeidaâ€“Thouless dependence for x â‰ 0 . This spin glass like behavior below 30 K is also supported by thermal evolution of the coercivity, which follows an exponential law typical of magnetic clusters, not found in the pure Ni2+ perovskite, x=0 extreme.

Abstract: New double perovskites LaPbMSbO6, where M2+ = Mn2+, Co2+, and Ni2+, were synthesized as polycrystals by an aqueous synthetic route at temperatures below 1000 Â°C. All samples are monoclinic, space group P21/n, as it is observed from Rietveld analysis of X-ray powder diffraction patterns. The distribution of M2+ and Sb5+ among the two octahedral sites have 3% of disorder for M2+ = Ni2+, whereas for M2+ = Mn2+ and Co2+ less disorder is found. The three samples have an antiferromagnetic transition, due to the antiferromagnetic coupling between M2 + through super-superexchange paths M2+-O2--Sb5+-O2--M2+. Transition temperatures are low: 8, 10 and 17 K for Mn2+, Co2+, and Ni2 + respectively, as a consequence of the relatively long distances between the magnetic ions M2+. Besides, for LaPbMnSbO6 a small transition at 45 K was found, with ferrimagnetic characteristics, possibly as a consequence of a small disorder between Mn2+ and Sb5+. This disorder would give additional and shorter interaction paths: superexchange Mn2+-O2--Mn2+.
