A new compound MgCoMnO4 has been synthesised by the oxide method. It crystallizes in a tetragonal spinel structure witha=8.30 A andc=8.46 A. The observed crystal symmetry is associated with the existence of Mn+3 on theB sites. The compound isn type semi-conductor with activation energy ΔE=0.33 eV. The electrical properties show that it can be regarded as a properly substituted MgMn2O4 by Co+3 ions. It is paramagnetic withCM=5.75 and ϑa =−160°K. All these results show the ionic configuration of the compound as Mg+2 [Co+3 Mn+3] O4.
