The temperature of the structural phase transition in cadmium calcium acetate hexahydrate as a function of Cu2+ concentration has been studied with electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). The phase transition temperature was found to vary from 144 to 124 K as the amount of copper varied from 0.07% to 1.3% of the sample weight. An extrapolation of this data predicts a structural phase transition at 145 K in pure cadmium calcium acetate hexahydrate. Good fits of the data to second-order phase transition theory was obtained with critical exponents close to 0.30.

    The measured increase in g|| between 4 and 100 K for Ni2+ in ZnSiF6·H2O has been explained as a consequence of the dynamical phonon coupling between the spins and the lattice. The Debye temperature of θ=130 K previously determined from the zero-field splitting has been found to agree with...
