Abstract

Two fluorophosphates, BaMPO4F (M = Cu, Co), have been synthesized by a conventional hydrothermal method, and they crystallize in the orthorhombic system with the space group P212121, exhibiting a tunnel structure built by distorted MO4F square-pyramids and PO4 tetrahedra. The magnetic behaviors of the two compounds are investigated by means of magnetic susceptibility, magnetization, and heat capacity measurements. The results indicate that BaCuPO4F exhibits a paramagnetic behavior down to 2 K, while BaCoPO4F undergoes long-range antiferromagnetic ordering at 11.3 K and short-range magnetic ordering at ∼22 K.
