Robust manipulation of magnetism in LaAO3/BaTiO3 (A = Fe, Mn, and Cr) superlattices by ferroelectric polarization

Robust control of magnetism in LaAO3/BaTiO3 (A = Fe, Mn, Cr) perovskite superlattices is realized. Not only magnetism switching but also spin polarized 2D electron gas are created by switching of the polarization. We demonstrate a powerful scheme to realize robust control of both magnetism and 2D electron gas. Our work points the direction of the further development of multiferroic field.

K-paracelsian (KAlSi3O8*H2O) and identification of a simple building scheme of dense double-crankshaft zeolite topologies

Synthesis and structure refinement of a dense zeolite with a one-dimensional channel system.

Accepted 7 November 2018

Structure model of -Al2O3based on planar defects

The defect structure of γ-Al2O3produced from boehmite was described with the aid of antiphase and rotational boundaries. The kind of the structure defects was concluded from the selected area electron diffraction patterns. The defect density was quantified from the anisotropic broadening of diffraction lines in powder X-ray diffraction patterns using a computer routine based on the Debye scattering equation.

Framework disorder and effects on selective hysteretic sorption of a T-shaped azole-based metal–organic framework

Framework (pore) disorder effects on gas sorption of azole-based isoreticular Cu(II) MOFs with rtl topology and characteristic 1D tubular pore channels are investigated for the first time.

Accepted 23 October 2018

Incommensurate structures of the [CH3NH3][Co(COOH)3] compound

The temperature evolution of [CH3NH3][Co(COOH)3] on a single crystal and the crystal structure determination of intermediate incommensurate phases of [CH3NH3][Co(COOH)3] by means of neutron diffraction are presented.

Accepted 19 October 2018

Computational design of symmetrical eight-bladed β-propeller proteins

Two artificial β-propeller proteins with eight identical blades were designed, purified and crystallized. X-ray crystallography confirmed the perfectly symmetrical structures of these highly stable proteins.

Accepted 16 October 2018

Direct air capture of CO­2 – topological analysis of the experimental electron density (QTAIM) of the highly insoluble carbonate salt of 2,6-pyridine-bis­(imino­guanidine), (PyBIGH2)(CO3)(H2O)4

Low-temperature X-ray and neutron diffraction experiments are used to characterize the electron-density distribution and intermolecular interactions in the insoluble carbonate salt of 2,6-pyridine-bis­(imino­guanidine), a potential CO2 sequestering agent. The importance of the hydrogen bonding ability of the cation to the anion–water structure is discussed.
