Structure-property relationships in oxides containing select platinum group metals

Gatimu, Alvin J. 10 July 2012 (has links)
Oxide materials exhibit a wide variety of structures and properties. In particular, transition metal oxides tend to be highly stable while exhibiting a wide range of properties that can be used for numerous applications. This work focuses on investigating how the structures��� of 4d and 5d transition metal oxides influences their properties. Specifically oxides of Ru, Rh and Ir were investigated. A complete solid solution was found between isostructural Pb���Mn���O������ and Pb���Rh���O������. Pb���Rh���O������ shows a Verwey-type transition at 185 K. This transition remains with a 3 % substitution of Mn for Rh but disappears with a 4 % substitution of Mn for Rh. The structure was found to expand in the direction perpendicular to the layers of the structure, which is the c-axis, despite a contracting unit cell. Bi for Pb substitution in Pb���Mn���O������ was found to be limited as compared to in Pb���Rh���O������. Alkali metal substitution on the A-site of the orthorhombic perovskite SrRuO��� showed only low substitution levels were possible. Nonetheless, the substituted phases showed decreased ferromagnetic Curie temperatures, increased electrical resisitivity and relatively unchanged Seebeck coefficients. Thermoelectric studies of Sr[subscript 2-x]La[subscript x]CoRuO��� perovskite phases showed Sr���.���La���.���CoRuO��� with the best thermoelectric performance. This system showed possible correlations between cation ordering on the B-site and the charge carrier transport. A similar thermoelectric study of (RhV)[subscript 1+x]Ti[subscript 1-2x]O��� phases crystallizing in a disordered trirutile structure was done. Electron carriers were found to be dominant and dependent on Ti content. The electron carriers appear to become diminished at higher temperatures. Sr���IrO��� crystallizes in a K���NiF���-type structure. Effects of Ti, Fe and Co substitution for Ir were investigated. A complete Sr���Ir[subscript 1-x]Ti[subscript x]O��� solid solution was synthesized and characterized while limited solubility was found for Fe and Co substitutions. All substitutions showed a decrease in the c-cell parameter coupled with a decrease in octahedral tilting. All substitutions also showed a decrease in magnetic susceptibility and an increase in the paramagnetic effective moment was observed for Co and Fe doped samples. An incomplete solid solution was formed for Sr���Ti[subscript 1-x]Rh[subscript x]O��� phases; however effects of increased octahedral tilting with higher Rh content were observed. / Graduation date: 2013

Structure-property relationships of oxides with hexagonal AMO��� and brownmillerite related structures

Jiang, Peng 28 August 2012 (has links)
Transition metal oxides exhibit potential in various application fields due to the special d-electrons. Solid state chemistry focuses on discovering the structure-property relationships. The work in this thesis mainly discusses compounds with hexagonal or brownmillerite-type structure and their practical properties. Hexagonal YIn[subscript 1-x]Fe[subscript x]O��� (x = 0-0.3, 0.7-1.0) phases have been prepared and characterized. All phases appear to have the ferroelectric structure known for YInO���. The color of the phases changes from yellow to orange to dark red with increasing Fe content. Magnetic measurements confirm high-spin Fe����� for all phases. Similarly, solid solution YAl[subscript 1-x]Fe[subscript x]O��� (x = 0-0.4, 0.7-1.0) phases were successfully synthesized through the sol-gel method. The Al-rich compounds present paraelectric YAlO��� structure while the Fe-rich side samples exhibit YFeO��� structure. The color of the compounds appear to be yellow with small Fe content and change to brown which has higher Fe content. Brownmillerite-type oxides Ba���In[subscript 2-x]Mn[subscript x]O[subscript 5+x] (x = 0.1-0.7) have been prepared and characterized. Magnetic measurements confirm that Mn in as prepared samples is substituting as Mn������ for all values of x with observed paramagnetic spin-only moments close to values expected for two unpaired electrons. Neutron diffraction structure refinements show Mn������ occupies tetrahedral sites for orthorhombic (x = 0.1) and tetragonal (x = 0.2) phases. For Mn ��� 0.3 samples, neutron refinements show the phases are cubic with disordered cations and oxygen vacancies. The colors of the phases change from light yellow (x = 0) to intense turquoise (x =0.1), to green (x = 0.2, 0.3) or dark green (x ��� 0.4). Solid solution Ba���In[subscript 2-x]Fe[subscript x]O[subscript 5+y] (x = 0.1-1.5) also exhibit brownmillerite-type structure. The color of the compounds appear to be green with small Fe content and change to black with higher Fe content (x ��� 0.3). Magnetic measurements and M��ssbauer spectroscopy conclude the mixed valence of Fe�����/Fe������ for all the phases. Nonstoichiometry compound YCu���.���Ti���.���O[subscript 3-��] has been prepared and characterized. Structure study indicates that oxygen vacancy is favored under the synthesis condition. This change in oxygen content was further studied in the Mn-doped system. And the effect of stoichiometric difference in the Mn-doped samples was not as obvious as the initial compound. The disorder in the cation site enhanced the tolerance of the structure in the aspect of oxygen content. The hexagonal phases LnCu���.���Ti���.���O��� (Ln = Y, Tb-Lu) phases were prepared by the traditional solid state reactions. The prepared compounds were reduced at high temperature in the reduction atmosphere created by the H���/N��� gas mixture. Study on the structure and properties changes by reduction was conducted by X-ray diffraction, optical measurement, magnetic measurement and thermalgravimetric analysis. And we observed some evidence of the presence of Cu��� in the reduced phase by these characterization methods. Solid solution YMn[subscript x]Ti[subscript y]O[subscript 3-��] (y = 0.1-0.4) was successfully prepared through conventional solid state approach. All the samples showed hexagonal structure. But the structure transition from ferroelectric P6���cm to paraelectric P6���/mmc occurred when Ti amount is higher than 0.2. Based on the neutron diffraction refinement, the lattice expanded in the ab plane but contracted along the c axis direction. / Graduation date: 2013
