Abstract

A series of perovskite phases have been prepared from the appropriate carbonates and oxides by heating under reducing conditions at temperatures up to 1300 °C. Complete ordering between ErO6 and MoO6 octahedra and a disordered distribution of Sr2+ and Ba2+ occur in all compounds. Neutron powder diffraction experiments show that the substitution of Sr2+ into Ba2ErMoO6 introduces a progressive reduction in symmetry from Fm3¯m (x=0) to I4/m (x=0.5, 0.8) to P21/n (x=1.25, 1.75, 2.0). Magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate that all of these compounds show Curie–Weiss paramagnetism and that for x<1.25 this behaviour persists down to 2 K. The monoclinically distorted compounds show magnetic transitions at low temperature and neutron diffraction has confirmed the presence of long-range antiferromagnetic order below 2.5 and 4 K in Ba0.25Sr1.75ErMoO6 and Sr2ErMoO6, respectively. Ba0.75Sr1.25ErMoO6, Ba0.25Sr1.75ErMoO6 and Sr2ErMoO6 do not undergo structural distortion on cooling from room temperature.
