Abstract

The stannides REIr2Sn4 (RE=La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm) were synthesized from the elements by arc melting or by induction melting in sealed niobium containers. They crystallize with the NdRh2Sn4 type structure, space group Pnma. The samples were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (Guinier technique). Three structures were refined from single-crystal X-ray data: a=1844.5(2), b=450.33(4), c=716.90(6) pm, wR2=0.0323, 1172 F2 values, 44 variables for LaIr2Sn4, a=1840.08(2), b=448.24(4), c=719.6(1) pm, wR2=0.0215, 1265 F2 values, 45 variables for Ce1.13Ir2Sn3.87, and a=1880.7(1), b=446.2(1), c=733.0(1) pm, wR2=0.0845, 836 F2 values, 45 variables for Ce1.68Ir2Sn3.32. The structures consist of three-dimensional [Ir2Sn4] polyanionic networks in which the rare earth atoms fill pentagonal prismatic channels. The striking structural motif concerns the formation of solid solutions RE1+xIr2Sn4−x on the Sn4 sites, which have similar coordination as the RE sites. Temperature dependent magnetic susceptibility measurements revealed diamagnetic behavior for LaIr2Sn4. CeIr2Sn4, PrIr2Sn4 and NdIr2Sn4 show Curie-Weiss paramagnetism while SmIr2Sn4 exhibits typical van Vleck paramagnetism. Antiferromagnetic ground states were observed for CeIr2Sn4 (TN=3.3 K) and SmIr2Sn4 (TN=3.8 K). 119Sn Mössbauer spectra show a close superposition of four sub-spectra which can be distinguished through their isomer shift and the quadrupole splitting parameter.

Keywords: 119Sn Mössbauer spectroscopy; crystal structure; magnetic properties; stannides

Dedicated to:

Professor Werner Uhl on the occasion of his 65th birthday.
