Need help with the NiAl2O4 structure
« on: June 13, 2018, 12:34:29 PM »
So I'm doing by Bachelor in Chemistry right now (2. Semester) and I'm going to have a synthesis laboratory where I will synthesis NiAl2O4. Now my question is wether this Crystal has a spinel or inverse spinel strructure? First I thought it would be a normal spinel structure couse of the Aluminium but after doing the math it seems so me it is not. Now I confused myself and can't find a good source for NiAl2O4 to look it up.

Thank you in advance.

If your university has paid for access, the information you need might be here:  https://materials.springer.com/isp/crystallographic/docs/sd_1616868  -- I can't check myself.  It seems this crystal forms a spinel-like crystal, at least.  Of course, if you're making it, you don't get to decide the crystal form, you get what it wants to make.  And presumably, you can determine from your product what happened.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.
