Abstract:

Rare earth tungsten bronze single crystals have been prepared for the first time by the method of electrolysis. Sodium tungsten bronze single crystals with x ranging between .37 and .81 were also prepared. Powder samples of a new tungsten bronze, uranium tungsten bronze, have been synthesized by a thermal reaction of tungsten trioxide, uranium oxide, and tungsten. Magnetic measurements indicate that uranium is tetravalent in the tungsten bronze compound. All samples were investigated by x-ray diffraction methods. Conductivity measurements were made on all samples and the metallic nature of the cubic rare earth and uranium tungsten bronzes was established. Author
