Structural and magnetic characterization of barbosalite Fe3(PO4)2(OH)2

Abstract : Single crystals and polycrystalline samples of barbosalite Fe3(PO4)2(OH)2 iron phosphate were successfully synthesized by hydrothermal method at low pressure and temperature. Careful investigations of the crystal structure by high resolution X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy evidence a complex barbosalite framework where trimers of face sharing FeO6 octahedra along the <110> direction are connected by an additional Fe site, partly occupied. Despite this structural disorder, the spins order in a rather simple magnetic structure below 160 ​K. The corresponding magnetic point group of P21 makes the barbosalite a promising candidate for the design of new multiferroics.
