    • Abstract

       

      A new compound, CaAl4Fe8O19, was synthesized for the first time and characterized by X-ray diffraction. It was found to have a hexagonal magnetoplumbite structure with lattice parametersa=5·83 Å andc=22·14 Å. The electrical studies showed that the compound was a semiconductor with energy of activationq=0·86 eV. The magnetic susceptibility was studied in the temperature range 300 K to 850 K, in which the compound was paramagnetic with a Curie molar constant of 31·03.
