A hybrid vanadium fluoride with structurally isolated S=1 kagome layers
MetadataShow full item record
A new organically-templated vanadium(III) fluoride, (NH4)(2)( C2H8N)-[ V3F12], has been prepared using an ionothermal approach. This compound has a unique layered structure featuring distorted S = 1 kagome planes separated by the cationic species. The compound exhibits magnetic frustration, with a canted antiferromagnetic ground state. On further cooling in the ground state a pronounced change in magnetisation kinetics is observed.
