    • Abstract


      Metathesis synthesis of complex metal fluorides using mechanochemical activation has been reported. The high lattice energy of the byproduct KCl helps the reaction towards product formation in under 20 min. The proposed process, in contrast to the available methods of synthesis, is very rapid, economical and results in products with controlled morphology. The structural, optical and chemical properties of synthesized powders are determined by powder X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, magnetization measurements and diffused reflectance spectra in the UV–VIS range.
