Topochemical nitridation of Sr2FeMoO6


The nitridation of cation ordered, tetragonal Sr2FeMoO6 in NH3 at moderate temperatures leads to the cubic, Fm-3m double perovskite oxynitride Sr2FeMoO4.9N1.1 where double-exchange interactions determine ferromagnetic order with Tc ≈ 100 K. Substitution of oxide by nitride induces bond asymmetries and local electronically-driven structural distortions, which combined with Fermi level lowering restrict charge itineracy to confined regions and preclude spontaneous long-range magnetic order. Under a magnetic field, ferromagnetic correlations expand, favoring charge delocalization and a negative magnetoresistance is observed.
