Structural Evolution and Magnetic Properties of Underfluorinated C2F
A series of layered inclusion compounds based on fluorinated graphite C2F x (x≤1) was obtained by a room temperature synthesis. Inclusion compounds (intercalates) of fluorinated graphite matrix were n-hexane and dichloromethane, i.e., organic guest molecules that differ in size and symmetry. The changes in C2F x stoichiometry are shown to have a decisive effect on magnetic properties of produced complexes. The spin concentration decreases with the increase of fluorine content in fluorocarbon matrix. All samples have groups of correlated spins; at the temperatures 1.75–5 K nonlinear magnetization is observed, indicating a high-spin state. Application of the Langevin formula shows that the clusters consist of 10–20 interacting spins.
