Title

Properties of a Mixed-valent Iron Compound with the Kagome Lattice

Abstract

An organically templated iron sulfate of the formula [HN(CH2)6NH][FeIIIFe2IIF6(SO4)2]⋅[H3O] possessing the kagomé lattice has been prepared and characterized by single-crystal crystallography and other techniques. This mixed-valent iron compound shows complex magnetic properties including spin-glass behavior and magnetic hysteresis. The low-temperature specific heat data show deviation from the T2 behavior found in two-dimensional frustrated systems. Simple calculations have been carried out to understand the properties of this kagomé compound.
