A new manganese(II) phosphite, Mn 2F 2(HPO 3)(1), was synthesized with tetraethylene pentamine as structure directing agent under hydrothermal conditions. The as-synthesized product was characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, powder X-ray diffraction, infrared(IR), UV-Vis spectrum, thermogravimetric analysis(TGA), inductive coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy(ICP-AES), elemental analyses and magnetic susceptibility measurement. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis reveals that compound 1 crystallized in the orthorhombic space group Pnma, with a=0.75667(15) nm, b=1.0247(2) nm, c=0.55432(11) nm, V=0.42980(15) nm 3, Z=4. The 3D compact framework of compound 1 was built up by the Mn 2O 6F 4 dimers and HPO 3 pseudo-pyramids. Compound 1, a new metal-rich manganese phosphite, shows a high thermal stability limit of 550 oC. Magnetic measurement indicates that compound 1 exhibits the global antiferromagnetic interactions with a ferromagnetic transition at 28 K.

Understanding the influence of complex interactions among hydrological factors, soil characteristics and biogeochemical functions on nutrient dynamics in overland flow is important for efficiently managing agricultural nonpoint pollution. Experiments were conducted to assess nutrient export from Ultisol soils in the Sunjia catchment, Jiangxi province, southern China, between 2003 and 2005. Four plots were divided into two groups: two peanut plots and two agroforestry (peanut intercropped with citrus) plots. During the study period, we collected water samples for chemical analyses after each rainfall event that generated overland flow to assess nutrient export dynamics. The concentrations of potassium (K) and nitrate-N (NO3 --N) in overland flow were higher during the wetting season (winter and early spring). This reflects the solubility of K and NO3 --N, the accumulation of NO3 --N during the dry season and an increase in desorption processes and mixing with pre-event water caused by prolonged contact with soil in areas with long-duration, low-intensity rainfall. In contrast, concentrations of total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) were higher during the wet season (late March to early July) and during the dry season (mid-July to the end of September or early October). This was due to the interaction between specific hydrological regimes, the properties of the Ultisol and particulate transport processes. Variations in nutrient concentrations during storm events further identified that event water was the dominant source of total nitrogen and total phosphorus, and pre-event water was the dominant source of NO3 --N. In addition, the results obtained for the different land uses suggest that agroforestry practices reduce nutrient loss via overland flow. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

In this study, the flaky graphite/cobalt zinc ferrite composites were synthesized by the coprecipitation method. The XRD results showed that the flaky graphite/cobalt zinc ferrite composites can be obtained and there is no impurity when the graphite weight ratio is less than 20 wt%. The FE-SEM results exhibited that the flaky graphite/cobalt zinc ferrite composites possessed flake-like shape with high aspect ratio. Moreover, the electromagnetic properties could be tuned by varying the graphite weight ratio. In the series of as-prepared flaky graphite/cobalt zinc ferrite composites, the sample with 10 wt% graphite possessed excellent impedance matching performance. As a result, the it exhibited the best microwave absorption properties. The reflection loss was less than -10 dB in frequency range of 10.3-13.5 GHz and the maximum reflection loss was reach to -33.85 dB at 11.7 GHz when the coating thickness was 2.5 mm. Moreover, the electromagnetic analysis demonstrated that the electromagnetic loss properties and the electromagnetic impedance matching performance should be both satisfied to obtain the excellent microwave absorption properties. This study was meaningful to design the ferrite/carbon composites based microwave absorbers. © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The ZnFe2O4 ferrite nanoparticle and nanofiber were synthesized by electrospinning method. The phase composition, morphology, magnetic and electromagnetic properties were analyzed. The results showed that both the samples exhibited a pure phase of spinel type ferrite. The ZnFe 2O4 ferrite nanoparticle was aggregated, while the ZnFe2O4 ferrite nanofiber performed the homogeneous nano-fibrous shape as well as single-particle-chain structure. The magnetic analysis indicated that the ZnFe2O4 ferrite nanofiber showed ferromagnetic behaviour. Moreover, the dielectric loss and magnetic loss properties of ZnFe2O4 ferrite nanofiber were both enhanced due to its better dipole polarization, interfacial polarization and shape anisotropy. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

The timing of onset of deposition of the Lulehe Formation is a significant factor in understanding the genesis of the Qaidam basin and the evolution of the Tibetan Plateau. Here, we describe a detailed magnetostratigraphic and magnetic fabric study of the middle and lower parts of the Lulehe Formation. A total of 234 samples were collected from 117 sites throughout a thickness of almost 460 m of liuvial and lacustrine deposits at the Xitieshan section in the northeastern Qaidam basin. Out of these sites, 94 sites yielded well-defined characteristic remanent magnetization components by stepwise thermal demagnetization and were used to establish the magnetostratigraphy of the studied section. Based on correlation with the geomagnetic polarity timescale, the studied section spans the period from 53.8 Ma to 50.7 Ma. Our results show a three-fold decrease in sedimentation rates as well as marked change in facies from braided river to delta and shore-shallow lake around 52.6 Ma, which suggests tectonic uplift of the northeastern Qaidam basin margin ridge was rapid at the onset of formation of the Qaidam basin and subsequently weakened after 52.6 Ma. The anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility results indicate that tectonic compression stress had reached the northeastern Tibetan Plateau by the early stages of Indo-Eurasian plate collision and that the direction of stress in the study area was NE-SW. Furthermore, a weakening of tectonic compression stress around 52.6 Ma is consistent with sedimentary records. The age of initial deposition of the Qaidam basin (around 53.8 Ma) was almost synchronous with that of the Qiangtang, Hoh Xil, Xining, and Lanzhou basins, which implies that stress was transferred rapidly through the Tibetan Plateau during or immediately after the onset of Indo-Eurasian collision.
