Abstract [en]

In this study the effects of cobalt substitutions in Fe5PB2 have been studied. An increased cobalt content reduces the magnetic exchange interactions. This has been concluded from a large, linear decrease in both the Curie temperature as well as the saturated magnetic moment. At high cobalt concentrations, cobalt prefers to order at the M(2) position in the crystal structure. A tunable Curie transition like this shows some prerequisites for magnetic cooling applications.

The substitutional effects of cobalt in (Fe1–xCox)5PB2 have been studied with respect to crystalline structure and chemical order with X-ray diffraction and Mössbauer spectroscopy. The magnetic properties have been determined from magnetic measurements, and density functional theory calculations have been performed for the magnetic properties of both the end compounds, as well as the chemically disordered intermediate compounds. The crystal structure of (Fe1–xCox)5PB2 is tetragonal (space group I4/mcm) with two different metal sites, with a preference for cobalt atoms in the M(2) position (4c) at higher cobalt contents. The substitution also affects the magnetic properties with a decrease of the Curie temperature (TC) with increasing cobalt content, from 622 to 152 K for Fe5PB2 and (Fe0.3Co0.7)5PB2, respectively. Thus, the Curie temperature is dependent on composition, and it is possible to tune TC to a temperature near room temperature, which is one prerequisite for magnetic cooling materials.

Abstract [en]

Transition-metal complexes are used as photosensitizers(1), in light-emitting diodes, for biosensing and in photocatalysis(2). A key feature in these applications is excitation from the ground state to a charge-transfer state(3,4); the long charge-transfer-state lifetimes typical for complexes of ruthenium(5) and other precious metals are often essential to ensure high performance. There is much interest in replacing these scarce elements with Earth-abundant metals, with iron(6) and copper(7) being particularly attractive owing to their low cost and non-toxicity. But despite the exploration of innovative molecular designs(6,8-10), it remains a formidable scientific challenge(11) to access Earth-abundant transition-metal complexes with long-lived charge-transfer excited states. No known iron complexes are considered(12) photoluminescent at room temperature, and their rapid excited-state deactivation precludes their use as photosensitizers(13-15). Here we present the iron complex [Fe(btz)(3)](3+) (where btz is 3,3'-dimethyl-1,1'-bis(p-tolyl)-4,4'-bis(1,2,3-triazol-5-ylidene)), and show that the superior sigma-donor and pi-acceptor electron properties of the ligand stabilize the excited state sufficiently to realize a long charge-transfer lifetime of 100 picoseconds (ps) and room-temperature photoluminescence. This species is a low-spin Fe(III) d(5) complex, and emission occurs from a long-lived doublet ligand-to-metal charge-transfer ((LMCT)-L-2) state that is rarely seen for transition-metal complexes(4,16,17). The absence of intersystem crossing, which often gives rise to large excited-state energy losses in transition-metal complexes, enables the observation of spin-allowed emission directly to the ground state and could be exploited as an increased driving force in photochemical reactions on surfaces. These findings suggest that appropriate design strategies can deliver new iron-based materials for use as light emitters and photosensitizers.

Abstract [en]

Mössbauer spectroscopy in the ferromagnetic AlFe2B2 reveals Tc=299 K and shows good agreement with magnetic measurements. The crystals are plate-shaped. The flakes are found from X-ray diffraction to be in the crystallographic ac-plane in the orthorhombic system. The axes of the principle electric field gradient tensor are, by symmetry, colinear with the crystal a-, b- and c-axes. By using information about the quadrupole splitting and line asymmetry in the paramagnetic regime together with the quadrupole shift of the resonance lines in the ferromagnetic regime the magnetic hyperfine field direction is found to be in the ab-plane having an angle =40° to the b-axis.

Abstract [en]

Copper hexacyanoferrate, Cu-II[Fe-III(CN)(6)](2/3)center dot nH(2)O, was synthesized, and varied amounts of IC ions were inserted via reduction by K2S2O3 (aq). Ideally, the reaction can be written as Cu-II[Fe-III(CN)(6)](2/3)-nH(2)O + 2x/3K(+) + 2x/3e(-)K(+) <-> K-2x/3 Cu-II[Fe-x(II).Fe-1-x(II),(CN)(6)](2/3)-nH(2)O. Infrared, Raman, and Mossbauer spectroscopy studies show that Fe-II is continuously reduced to Fell with increasing x, accompanied by a decrease of the a-axis of the cubic Fn (3) over barm unit cell. Elemental analysis of K by inductively coupled plasma shows that the insertion only begins when a significant fraction similar to 10% of the Fe-III, has already been reduced. Thermogravimetric analysis shows a fast exchange of water with ambient atmosphere and a total weight loss of similar to 26 wt % upon heating to 180 degrees C, above which the structure starts to decompose. The crystal structures of Cu-III[Fe-III(CN)(6)](2/3)center dot nH(2)O and K2/3Cu[Fe(CN)(6)](2/3)center dot nH(2)O were refined using synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction data. In both, one-third of the Fe(CN)(6) groups are vacant, and the octahedron around Cull is completed by water molecules. In the two structures, difference Fourier maps reveal three additional zeolitic water sites (8c, 32f, and 48g) in the center of the cavities formed by the-Cu-N-C-Fe- framework. The K-containing compound shows an increased electron density at two of these sites (32f and 48g), indicating them to be the preferred positions for the K+ ions.

Abstract [en]

The tavorite polymorph of LiFeSO4F has attracted considerable attention as a cathode material for lithium ion batteries due to interesting structural and electrochemical characteristics. For the analysis of such iron-based electrode materials, Mössbauer spectroscopy has become an important and highly useful tool. In this work, we perform a detailed Mössbauer study of pristine tavoriteLiFeSO4F prepared by an optimized synthesis in tetraethylene glycol as reaction media. In contrast to many reported results, we demonstrate the use of an asymmetric fitting model for the inner doublet of the spectrum, which is coupled to the structural properties of the compound. Moreover, we discuss a new approach of ascribing the Fe2 + -doublets to the two distinct crystallographic iron sites of tavorite LiFeSO4F by comparing the Mössbauer signal intensities with the expected f-factors for the corresponding iron atom.

Abstract [en]

Many compounds adopting the tavorite-type crystal structure have attracted considerable attention as cathode materials for lithium ion batteries due to the favorable structural characteristics, facilitating promising electrochemical performance. Recent reports have highlighted the complex mechanism of lithium insertion/extraction in some of these compounds, such as the stabilization of intermediate phases in the LiFeSO4OH and LiVPO4F systems. In the case of tavorite LiFeSO4F, reported density functional theory (DFT) calculations have suggested the possibility of a similar behavior, but thus far, no experimental verification of such a process has, to the best of our knowledge, been successfully demonstrated. In this work, we investigate the structural evolution of LiFeSO4F upon extraction/insertion of lithium ions from/into the host framework. By thorough ex situ characterizations of chemically and electrochemically prepared LixFeSO4F-samples (0 ≤ x ≤ 1), we demonstrate the stabilization of an intermediate phase, Li1/2FeSO4F, for which one possible structural model is proposed. However, results indicating charge ordering on the iron-sites, suggesting the formation of a super structure with a larger unit cell, are also highlighted. Moreover, the degree of formation of Li1/2FeSO4F is shown to be highly dependent on the rate of lithium extraction as a result of an exceptionally small potential separation (similar to 15 mV during charging) of the two subsequently occurring biphasic processes, LiFeSO4F/Li1/2FeSO4F and Li1/2FeSO4F/FeSO4F. Finally, the intermediate phase is shown to be formed both on charge and discharge during battery cycling, even though an apparent asymmetrical electrochemical trace suggests the contrary.

Abstract [en]

X-ray diffraction, Mossbauer and magnetization measurements have been performed on hematite nanoparticles, prepared by sol-gel method, to study the effect of the mixing tools used in the preparation on their magnetic properties. It has been shown that the mixing tool, i.e. magnetic or mechanical, has a crucial effect on the magnetic behaviors of magnetic nanoparticles. Furthermore, the degree of purity of nitrogen gas used in the preparation process also plays a minor role in magnetic properties of such nanoparticles.

Abstract [en]

The tavorite polymorph of LiFeSO4F has recently attracted a lot of interest as a cathode material for lithium ion batteries stimulated by its competitive specific capacity, high potential for the Fe2+/Fe3+ redox couple, and low-temperature synthesis. However, the synthesis routes explored to date have resulted in notably varied electrochemical performance. This inconsistency is difficult to understand given the excellent purity, crystallinity, and similar morphologies achieved via all known methods. In this work, we examine the role of the interfacial chemistry on the electrochemical functionality of LiFeSO4F. We demonstrate that particularly poor electrochemical performance may be obtained for pristine materials synthesized in tetraethylene glycol (TEG), which represents one of the most economically viable production methods. By careful surface characterization, we show that this restricted performance can be largely attributed to residual traces of TEG remaining on the surface of pristine materials, inhibiting the electrochemical reactions. Moreover, we show that optimized cycling performance of LiFeSO4F can be achieved by removing the unwanted residues and applying a conducting polymer coating, which increases the electronic contact area between the electrode components and creates a highly percolating network for efficient electron transport throughout the composite material. This coating is produced using a simple and scalable method designed to intrinsically favor the functionality of the final product.

Abstract [en]

Fe0.5TiOPO4 oxyphosphate was prepared directly by solid state reaction. It crystallizes in the monoclinic system with P2(1)/c space group and the use of Fe0.5TiOPO4 as an active material in lithium-ion batteries shows two potential plateaus and an irreversible discharge capacity of similar to 200 rnAh/g. To understand the origin of this irreversibility, a series of LixFe0.5TiOPO4 (x = 0.06, 0.21 0.76, 1.14) were chemically prepared and analyzed by X-ray diffraction. A structure amorphization of the LixFe0.5TiOPO4 phosphates takes place during the lithiation process. Magnetization and Mossbauer spectroscopy studies of the LixFe0.5TiOPO4 samples clearly show the formation of iron metal which induces a deterioration of the crystal structure of the studied electrode materials. The lithiation process leads thus to a conversion reaction which explains the irreversibility of the electrochemical process during the first discharge. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
