Magnetic susceptibility observation of removing oxygen from some Chevrel compounds

  • W. H. Wright
  • D. M. Ginsberg


A refined method for preventing the incorporation of oxygen into Chevrel compounds is presented. This method has been used in producing Cu1.8Mo6S8, SnMo6S8, and PbMo6S8. The removal of oxygen enhances the magnetic susceptibility of these materials as well as raising their superconducting transition temperatures. The curves of magnetic susceptibility versus temperature show structures that may indicate lattice deformations.
