Abstract

AMn2P2(A = Sr, Ba) is an example of a composition that can assume a different structure type depending on the identity of the cation. BaMn2P2 crystallizes in the ThCr2Si2 structure type (I4/mmm), and SrMn2P2 crystallizes in the CaAl2Si2 structure type (P3̄m1). Temperature-dependent magnetic susceptibility, neutron diffraction, and resistivity measurements were obtained for the two compounds. Neutron diffraction shows that BaMn2P2 exhibits long-range antiferromagnetic ordering at room temperature. Mn(II) is high spin, with ordered moment 4.2 (1) μB, and the magnetic structure is type G. Magnetic susceptibility measurements show no maxima up to 750 K, indicating that the transition temperature, Tc, is very high. SrMn2P2 is antiferromagnetic below Tc = 53(1) K, as determined from the temperature dependence of the magnetic reflections. There are two distinct sets of magnetic reflections distinguished by different temperature dependencies and indexing schemes. The magnetic structure is evidently complex, but was not determined. Both compounds exhibit semiconducting resistivity behavior with Ea = 0.073(1) eV (BaMn2P2) and 0.0129(2) eV (SrMn2P2). The properties of BaMn2P2 and SrMn2P2 are discussed in light of their structures and previous theoretical investigations by Zheng and Hoffmann.
